Innovation happens when ideas meet ability! The campuses of Ben Gurion University are exactly the place to try to realize the wildest fantasies and dreams and test the craziest inventions 'for real'!
The Green Campus Living Lab Project transforms the campuses of Ben Gurion University in the Negev into a research arena for practical sustainability. We invite the public to submit proposals for field research, a pilot, a prototype, or a practical experiment in the sustainability field that can be carried out in the coming months!

Why become involved?

Applying research excellence and innovation for reducing the institution's environmental impact.
To advance practical and sustainable solutions to organizational and everyday environmental issues.
Finding innovative ways to achieve the environmental policy goals of Ben Gurion University.
Producing a new scientific contribution that can be anchored in the real world (not in laboratory conditions).

The Green Campus Living Lab Project offers financial support for projects or applied research that will use Ben-Gurion University's campus grounds or facilities as a research arena for practical sustainability in one or more (but not only) of the following areas:
