Student work

The Winter Universiade offers space for innovative projects, scientific research and creative ideas. Students at Swiss universities can actively participate in the organisation with student work.

In March 2016, the bid committee of the Winter Universiade Lucerne-Central Switzerland presented its candidature to the Executive Council of the International University Sports Federation FISU in Brussels. Students from Central Switzerland participated in this successful bid. Nayan Stalder, Emmanuel Krucker and Manuel Büchel of the Lucerne School of Music accompanied the presentation with a musical performance. It was a complete success, and the concluding Gaudeamus Igitur received a standing ovation.

The story is well known – the bid was successful, Central Switzerland won the right to host the 30th Winter Universiade in 2021. However, another story continues: Swiss students will participate in the planning and organisation of the event, and will actively help to shape it.
