Focus on research

Baraque Futur, University Colleges Leuven-Limburg

UCLL and the Flemish, four-day festival Pukkelpop established a partnership in 2015 to work together on sustainability and the festival of the future. Every year, new experiments will be carried out and new challenges within the theme will be identified during a process in which the university college’s expertise units will involve different study programmes and student groups.

In 2015, UCLL and Pukkelpop launched the first sustainable stage at a festival with energy dance floor, solar panels and a smart grid for the Baraque Futur festival zone. In 2016, students and lecturers presented brand new experiments on sustainability. In addition to green energy, the focus was now also on recycling. Collected cups were transformed into unique Pukkelpop gadgets using 3D printers. But there was also a silent mini disco with energy generating dance floor, a rapeseed-run jukebox, workshops, so-called clean teams, and so on.

Overall, almost 100 students and lecturers/researchers were involved in ensuring the success of all new projects and experiments.

  • Study programmes involved: Teacher training programme; Electromechanics/Energy Technology; Business management; Food Science and Dietetics.
  • Research groups involved: expertise unit Energy UCLL; Technology and Science Academy UCLL
