Creating Interfaces

Creating Interfaces will address capacity building for the urban FWE nexus, making the linkages understandable to the stakeholders (government, science, business, and citizens), and facilitating cooperation and knowledge exchange among them.

It will develop and test innovative approaches for local knowledge co-creation and participation through Urban Living Labs in three midsize cities on water: Tulcea (Romania), Wilmington (USA) and Slupsk (Poland). Complemented by previous research and a citizen science toolbox, these labs comprise a user-defi ned co-creative approach where research questions, problems, and solutions are decided and implemented with stakeholders themselves.
