CAPATHITY: Simulating the Post-fossil Swiss City

The Informatics and Sustainability Research group and Empa’s Technology and Society Lab will work together on CAPATHITY (Constraint-Aware Pathways to the Post-Fossil Swiss City).

This project is supported by the National Research Program 73 "Sustainable Economy" and aims to provide both visionary and realistic pathways to a post-fossil economy.

A major outcome of CAPATHITY will be a simulation game that shows what the "Swiss City" 2050 could look like. The simulations take into account materials, technology, the natural environment, and societal constraints.
