The FUTURE LAB in Gurten is a modern knowledge and learning workshop for all generations. In a creative environment, children, young people, and the young at heart can acquaint themselves with future technologies. In a playful way, they acquire tomorrow´s knowledge and expertise, thereby discovering their talents, interests, and future career paths.
"Our intention is to make the Future Lab Europe´s coolest knowledge factory for digital talent and innovative minds. Partners from industry and research are cooperating with training facilities. Under the motto ´Discover your genius´, this is establishing a dynamic skills network for young people," explains Andreas Fill. However, Fill´s partners, customers, and suppliers can also work here on new ideas, innovations, and cooperations. In this way, joint projects with a regional reference for sustainable networking are being established across all industries and generations.
The think tank consists of eight laboratories: Media-Lab, Smart-Lab, VR-Lab, Robo-Lab, Mobility-Lab, Making-Lab, Health-Lab, and Data-Lab. These address the themes of digitalization, research, technology, and innovation. As different as the individual labs may be, what they all have in common are the essential skills of goal-oriented action, careful handling of equipment, capacity for teamwork, and ability to reflect which are taught here. The 140-square-meter talent laboratory is part of the FILL FUTURE ZONE at the Gurten site. Together with project partner "Otelo eGen", a modular workshop for thinking laterally and working creatively is being created, which is one of a kind.
