The innovation camp "Pioneers Challenge", organized by Fraunhofer for the first time in 2019, focused on innovative concepts for Lusatia at the beginning of September under the motto "Living change - biological transformation of a post-mining landscape". In three interdisciplinary teams of designers, artists and architects as well as scientists of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, innovative solutions and ideas for the positive development of the region were to be designed within one week at the location of the floating autartec® house developed by the Fraunhofer IVI on the Bergheider See.

“Syncreate" is a value creation concept with the aim of giving the Lausitz region a new, self-confident identity as a creative and productive location, positively shaping the post-mining landscape and using the quiet remote location to enable concentrated, productive work in a fresh, natural environment. For this purpose, a concept of a newly created, innovative campus of business and industry for interdisciplinary, collaborative work was developed.
