And The People, Oostwest, Kennisland, Publieke Versnellers and Perspectivity have started an initiative with the aim to contribute to knowledge & experience exchange on the "Social Labs" approach.
So far three working sessions were organized discussing a range of key-elements of Social Labs. Definitions, roles, processes, methods, learnings and insights of Socal Labs were discussed next to challenges, successes, impact and critical success indicators for Social Labs.
It is a welcome surprise that the in-house experience with Social Labs contains an extensive track record for over 5 years, in various sectors ranging from healthcare and circular economy to housing and poverty reduction. The coming sessions will focus on realising the ideal Social Lab around a pressing societal challenge.
For members that are interested: Get access to the Slack channel by sending a slack DM to Belle Barbé.
