Living Labs

The key motivation for the Urban Living Lab Center and Hubs is the vision to combine capacity building and local implementation support for the transition towards sustainable cities. Thematic areas include socio-economic, legal, financial, political and institutional feasibility of integrated urban transition strategies. This aims to link academic studies and the collaboration with local authorities and other relevant stakeholders on concrete implementation actions. The ambition in this respect is to enable and support the implementation of tangible implementation actions in cities internationally.
