What are the Urban Labs?
The Urban Labs are the core element of this project. These gather together cultural organisations, local authorities, cultural and creative spaces to explore complex urban challenges in collaboration with other stakeholders. Together, they commit to develop innovative solutions.
Seven organisations are responsible for leading and organising seven Urban Labs in partnership with a number of selected organisations, the so-called Handshake Partners. In total, 37 organisations in 21 European countries are part of the Urban Labs. What they all have in common is that:
- they are already exploring new and groundbreaking methodologies of co-creation and of policy development, and
- they are ready to override hierarchical organisational structures in favour of horizontal and collaborative approaches.
