Urban Labs - Experimenting for sustainable cities

This workshop offers a reflection on the recent trend of “labs” in the urban context. You will learn why ICIS considers experimenting an interesting approach to sustainable urban development, and why urban labs are all about governance. You will have a look in the kitchen of three recent and ongoing research projects on urban labs in the Netherlands and Europe. And you have the chance to get to know the LAB kit for setting up your lab in 1 day.

About value (creation) and values

What is value, how we define it and how to measure it? How could/should organisations benefit from it and how could we implement it, what change is needed or already happening in the economy and society? What does it mean for business, society and all other actors?

Sustainability Assessment for decision making

Sustainability Assessment (SA) aims to integrate knowledge on sustainability issues from different scientific disciplines and societal stakeholders to support decision-making. The ICIS approach to SA is characterized by an emphasis on problem structuring and learning, and attention for diversity in problem perspectives and uncertainty in long-term developments. SA is a prominent and distinctive part of ICIS’ Master program in ‘Sustainability Science & Policy’. In the course ‘Sustainability Assessment Project’, student teams conduct a 6-week consultancy project for external clients, including decision-makers from local, provincial and national governments, as well as from NGOs and companies. We will explain the ICIS approach to SA, give examples of the many successful student SA projects, and indicate what can it mean for your organization.
