Who we are

StadtLABOR is an innovation platform for cooperative urban development. We understand the transformation of cities and city districts as an open and collaborative development process that creates spaces for inspiration, creativity, mutual learning and innovation.

Urban quality of life as a goal requires a comprehensive and holistic view on different aspects of the city, thus an interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach. In this sense, we work at the interface between city administration, developers, local businesses and institutions as well as citizens, promoting a new culture of cooperation and co-creation of solutions.

We define ourselves as an Innovation Lab, therefore, we follow different principles of „urban living labs“ in our daily work:

Long-term, strategic partnerships between urban stakeholders.
Leave the seminar room and organize your meeting on-site
Knowledge transfer, experimentation and prototyping:
Sustainable cities as a goal.

Since 2015, StadtLABOR is a member of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), an international network with more than 170 members worldwide.
