A house for small and big ideas

The Student Project House gives you an opportunity to think outside of your curriculum. Here, you learn how to identify a need, design solutions and test your hypothesis with real prototypes. We are convinced that combining the knowledge gained in your studies with the freedom to explore will lead you to great innovations.

Tune In

You do not need an idea to get involved. Important is a desire to tackle a problem. Join us to discuss and learn more about challenges our world is facing.


You want to move straight to action. Join one of our programs, start your own project with our mentors or get involved in an existing project.


You are very clear as to what you want to do and simply need a space to test and prototype. At Makerspace you can use various tools and machines to make it happen.

Tune Into Social Innovation

Where solutions to unsolved problems in society are born

Are you keen to explore challenges around climate change, deep poverty, inequalities, alienation and many more? Join our  talks, hackathons and 'design challenge' programs to learn and experience how new products, processes or partnerships can tackle unsolved problems in society.

Tune Into Future of Food

Where Food and Agriculture innovations are born to feed future generations

Innovative solutions are required to tackle global food challenges of today and to identify opportunities along the entire food value chain for tomorrow. If you want to support development of solutions in the area of food and agriculture, this is the place to find out more.

Make cycling cooler. Everyone who has climbed the Hönggerberg on a bicycle knows this feeling: breaking sweat is uncomfortable, especially during summer. We want to give you a refreshing treat, should you decide to ride your bike during the summer months.


OnBoard is an online platform where community members learn with each other. While various studies have shown formative assessment and immediate feedback play a key role in learning, it remains challenging to make the students' learning experience individualized. OnBoard combines the good sides of traditional classrooms and massive open online courses.


We are three students with a passion for sports and nature (ETH, UZH & HSG). During one of our training sessions, we had the idea of combining natural energy with great taste and a lifestyle product. Our vision was to use the energy of nature to help people achieve more. We didn't need artificial ingredients to develop our Nao drinks. Nature inspired us.


Tethys wants to bring together students with a passion for underwater technology and exploration and aims to be the first Swiss team ever to participate in the 2019 MATE ROV competition. This competition is held by the Institute for Marine Advanced Technology and Education (MATE) in the USA. Its goal is to motivate students, to apply and expand their knowledge by building an underwater robot.


Acos is a personalized access control and data collection systems developed in the Student Project House. It is based on off-the-shelf components and offers an always increasing amount of functionality.

Precious Plastic

Precious Plastic aims to find renewed purpose for all non-recycled and non-toxic plastics waste. Our aim currently involves creating the space and machines that enable us to give a new life to non-recycled plastics. We hope to inspire you to come build with us and create plastic products. Plastic is a resource, not waste!


Swimming is one of the technically most demanding sports. In order to effectively convert power into speed, many factors must work together in perfect harmony. And despite how many people do swimming as a sport, good feedback is difficult to find and doesn’t come cheap: Currently, swimmers have the option to either join a club or get private lessons. Both options are costly and don’t fit every swimmer’s desire for flexibility and independence.


Haigō modular furniture system aims at creating a much more intuitive and pleasant user experience by taking the advantages of modular furniture, but eliminating the need for tools or any additional fasteners when putting it together and providing a more affordable, well-designed alternative to high-end designer pieces.
