Research activity and role


Scientific Coordination of the European Reserach project: "Looper. Learning Loops in Public Realms"


Project description


The Looper project was a European research project on finding solutions to urban problems using co-creation. The project ran from 2017 until 2020 and was funded under the JPI Urban Europe ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures Call.

The Looper Living Labs served as new models for experimental design and innovation at the urban and community level. They addressed practical problems such as air quality, road safety, noise, or green space. The Living Labs were based on the involvement of stakeholders, continuous monitoring of changes and direct consideration of their impact on the implementation process. There were Looper Living Labs in BrusselsManchester and Verona.
