Please join the session 10 minutes in advance to ensure any technical issues can be resolved before the event starts.
This workshop proposes to share experience on “Urban Labs” models (organisation, governance….) and practices in Europe, using concrete examples to show how experimentation accelerates innovation in cities.
Based on the examples of urban Labs presented (see below), and their own experiences and thoughts, participants will be brought into a participative process to question key challenges related to urban labs development, and how these challenges could be further discussed in a subsequent step.
