As part of our dissemination strategy, SMARTDEST partnership invites leading experts and practitioners in the field to present their own experience with participatory methodologies (city labs, urban living labs, etc.).
The specific objective of this event is to present the results of the project’s 7 city labs and to establish a dialogue with researchers, civil society, and stakeholders who have engaged in similar experiences and faced the challenge of scaling up micro level results into local, national, and European scales and their policy dimensions.
At this point, the project team is conducting city labs in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Jerusalem, Lisbon, Ljubljana, Turin, and Venice. In all 7 cities, participatory fora have been created, solutions have been co-designed and concept tested in articulation with affected communities and other stakeholders.
Participatory methods and urban issues
This session brings together researchers with consolidated experience in participatory methods, including urban living labs and other similar fora Our aim is to learn from past or ongoing labs, and to discuss their innovation potential and social impact.
Scaling up challenges and policy interventions
This session brings together practitioners and stakeholders who have faced the challenge of translating results from participatory methodologies into policy at different scales local, national, or European. We are interested in learning from your experiences and discussing the potentials and limitations of policy making and policy implementation resulting from city labs.
