Aix-Marseille Université (AMU) launched its CIVIS Open Lab on 25th March 2021 with a Call for Projects open to the university's local stakeholders, staff and students. The selection committee, made up of representatives of Open Labs from the eight member universities and local Participative Council members, selected four projects in response to common shared needs within the CIVIS challenge categories. The initiatives focus on four gloabal issues that are relevant for the Aix-Marseille region and its citizens.
- Service Learning
- Tactical and participative urban planning
- Collective intelligence for and by citizens
- Digital Transformation
These projects will be supported by AMU’s Open Lab seed funding scheme for their development and implementation from June 2021 to June 2022. The official kick-off meeting of the CIVIS Open Lab Aix-Marseille will be held on 9 September 2021 at the AMU headquarters in le Pharo, Marseille.
