The aim of this innovation project is to build transformation capacity for urban transitions that connect both inner and outer transformation, Existential Sustainability, through an experimental Innovation Portfolio Approach. This will be done in three European cities: Lund (SE), Timișoara (RO) and Amsterdam (NL) by three different types of intermediaries: an innovation platform, a cultural NGO, and a university Master programme. These are supported by a unique constellation of universities, businesses, social and cultural organisations and city authorities.
Each intermediary works with a local urban challenge where the cultural and creative sector has ample opportunities to catalyse innovation and co-creation. By shifting focus from supporting single innovation projects to facilitating urban transition portfolios, the project paves way for a more impactful and sustainable approach that suits the complexity of urban challenges.
The objectives of the project are to 1) develop the skills of intermediaries and their toolbox, 2) facilitate 7-15 mission driven innovation projects through the Innovation Portfolio Approach and 3) to increase participation in open innovation for urban transition through culture and creativity by developing concepts for demo forums.
