We are looking for visionaries, for change makers, for futurologists, for people who want to take action, for bridge builders, for creative minds and high flyers.

Program

DFR is an open, transdisciplinary program for anyone who wants to develop strategies and prototypes for a future living environment. The structure of this university course is “vertical”. Students from various classes work together and learn from each other. This creates group projects, interdisciplinary collaborations and synergies between the participants.
