On 9 September 2021, Aix-Marseille Université launched the first round of projects supported by its CIVIS Open Lab

CIVIS Open Labs

The CIVIS Open Labs aim to create a space where universities and citizens can discuss local needs and challenges and participate in the co-creation of projects based on an integrated approach. In short, the CIVIS Open Labs develop innovative and inclusive initiatives that have a positive impact on citizens.

A successful event

The event, which brought together about 60 people was also an opportunity to discuss the projects selected following a call launche in March 2021. This first call had sought projects which contribute to the development and implementation of proposals presented in response to the five CIVIS challenges:

  • Climate, Environment, Energy
  • Health
  • Society, Culture, Heritage
  • Digital and Technological Transformations
  • Cities, Territories, Mobilities

Four projects were selected by the jury, with a focus on:

  • the development of service-learning
  • the appropriation of new tools for urban mobilisation
  • collective intelligence for and by citizens
  • digital transformation
