Polifactory, Politecnico di Milano’s fablab hosted the first co-creation labs exchange meeting on the 12 and 13 February during 2 full days of work to share experiences and discuss their journeys, challenges and learnings.
Fab Labs, Living Labs and Science Museums had a full programme of activities to present their activities, identify and map overlaps and experiment themselves co-creation methodologies. In a nutshell, these 2 days have helped them get to know each other better and devise new ways of working together.
The stakeholders were involved in challenges using role-playing games and learnt about the circular economy in Copenhagen, air pollution in Krakow, healthcare in Thessaloniki, mental health issues in Dublin, precision agriculture in Novisad and water access in Lisbon. They could also test 6 co-creation tools that can support them in analysing their contexts, reframing problems and envisioning alternatives during their journeys. These new insights will support them throughout the next phases of the project.
