The IBH, the Internationale Bodensee-Konferenz (IBK) (International Lake Constance Conference) und INTERREG-V-Alpenrhein-Bodensee-Hochrhein promote research and innovation partnerships between higher education institutions, businesses and society through thematically oriented IBH labs. By doing so, they make a sustainable contribution to the promotion of knowledge, innovation, and technology transfer and thus to the attractiveness of the Lake Constance region as a location.
“Low-tech” refers to buildings that are energy-efficient, resource-saving and economical. Low-tech building concepts set a conscious counterpoint to the ever-increasing mechanization of buildings. This lighthouse project – initiated by the IBK – is scheduled to run for five years.
