Envisioning Workshops.

These 3 workshops are platforms to present and browse solutions already in operation in cities around the world. Introducing diverse creative and interactive methodologies, they will help public and private decision-makers to benchmark the market at a glance, build partnerships and take interest in leading services. International companies and cities taking part, will share first-hand experiences in making cities more efficient, attractive, accessible and sustainable whilst encouraging entrepreneurs to take the risk to invent new solutions. The workshops draw on rich case material including include - Mobile parking & transport (mass transport and individual mobility) - Human City (city for citizens, intelligent cities) - Territorial development (social, technical and economical) - Urban services manufacturing (merchant services, city services, services to individual citizensâfiı) - Services for visually impaired - Mobility services for tourism - Mobile healthcare in cities - Public health and infrastructures:

Envisioning Workshop I

 

Smarter mobility

animated by Dominique Laousse, DG Innovation and Sustainable Development, Prospective and Innovative Design, RATP, Paris France

Aims

Cities have always been places of, and for, innovation. Today we are facing challenges (pollution, congestion, economic growth, human welfare...) that can be teasers toward urban innovation. Major changes affecting urban transport and mobility have shown the way. The main idea is that innovation is possible following a structured approach called Innovative Design. During the workshop, the purpose is to grasp new ideas and concepts about Cities evolution. The main objective of the workshop will be to open new ways to think differently about urban innovation.

Structure/ Organisation of the workshop

The approach is based on C-K Theory (Concept-Knowledge Theory) and KCP workshops (Knowledge-Concept-Prototypes/Projects) conceived by the research team from School of Mining of Paris.
- Introduction (D. Laousse, RATP): Introduction to Innovative Design applied to urban challenges and to the workshop's methodology
- Workshop: Parallel thematic sessions (4 workgroups for around 15 participants each)
- Reports: Workgroups present their conclusions under a pre-determined format (10 minutes for each group)
- Panel reactions: Reactions from a panel (4-5 participants)
- Conclusions

Workshop content

Thematic sessions will be launched by presentation of pre-determined "projector concepts"
- to organize and boost debates. Previous case studies will be presented to define projector concepts in 4 major themes:
- Mobility (mass transport and individual mobility)
- Human City (city for citizens, intelligent cities...)
- Territorial development (social, technical and economical)
- Urban services manufacturing (merchant services, city services, services to individual citizensâfiı)
     

Envisioning Workshop II

 

Innovative urban services - GPS for Enterprises

animated by Marc Clerkx, Flanders DC_Flanders District of Creativity, Leuven, Belgium

Flanders District of Creativity is the Flemish organization for entrepreneurial creativity, founded by the Flemish Government as a non-profit organization. Flanders DC acts as a platform for cooperation in the pursuit of a more creative region, understanding creativity not as a goal in itself but as a means for businesses to compete smarter and for governments to ensure a healthy economy with more jobs.
Flanders DC promotes entrepreneurial creativity throughout the region in order to make Flanders a more creative, more prosperous and more ambitious place to live and work.
In 2004 Flanders DC took the initiative to set up the Districts of Creativity network. The exclusive international network of the most creative regions worldwide aims to share knowledge and best practices in the fields of creativity & innovation. Every year, the DC members* convene the Creativity World Forum, bringing together government leaders, entrepreneurs, and knowledge institutions to exchange ideas about how to tackle pressing economic problems and make their regions hotbeds for innovation and creativity.
*Baden-Württemberg, Catalunya, Flanders, Karnataka, Lombardia, Nord-Pas de Calais, Oklahoma, Qingdao, Québec, Scotland, Shanghai, Rhône-Alpes and Tampere.

Flanders DC sets up awareness projects around entrepreneurial creativity and develop of practical tools and encourages entrepreneurs and citizens to look ahead and find creative solutions today to tomorrow's problems. It has developed several projects in this field:
- GPS for Enterprises: a simple but effective brainstorming method for generating ideas.
- The Flanders DC Fellows: 50 creative Flemish entrepreneurs who come to your school or event to tell their inspiring stories and talk about entrepreneurial creativity.
- The Creators, the first TV program about creativity.

Aims

During this workshop the GPS for Enterprises tool will be used in order to come up with new, creative ideas in the field of innovative urban services. The GPS for Enterprises is a simple but effective brainstorming method to generate ideas. In a group, you explore ways in which your company, school or association can react to future trends and developments. This way you use the creative potential of not only your own organisation, but others as well to maximise your best ideas for the future.

Target groups
Flanders DC has four target groups:
- policy makers
- general public
- companies
- knowledge institutions
- education

Envisioning Workshop Iii

 

Cities as living laboratories for service innovation and high-growth technologies

animated by Sascha Haselmayer, General Director, Living Labs Global

Living Labs Global is an initiative to build a global market for urban service innovations, counting cities like Barcelona, Hamburg, Stockholm and international organizations like INTA and the Institute for Information Industry (III) in Taiwan among its strategic members. Together with innovative small- and medium-sized companies, these cities and institutions promote innovative services and technologies to advance their communities, and offer companies new opportunities for growth.
 
Aims
The Living Labs Global envisioning workshops are platforms to present and browse solutions already in operation in cities around the world. Introducing a creative and interactive methodology, they help public and private decision-makers to benchmark the market at a glance, build partnerships and take interest in leading services.
International companies and cities will take part in the workshop, sharing their first-hand experiences in making cities more efficient, attractive, accessible and sustainable whilst encouraging entrepreneurs to take the risk to invent new solutions.

Structure/ Organisation of the workshop

Participants of the workshop will experience the 7 Steps from observation to commercialization and will gain first hand insights, and a chance to interact with international experts, business leaders, city leaders and entrepreneurs.

The workshop will follow the Living Labs Global methodology, taking participants through a highly interactive experience. Key issues to be highlighted are:
1. Observation: Identifying local problems that can become global solutions.
2. Solution Concept: How to create at a concept that can solve a major global challenge.
3. The Actors: Motivating the eight key actors that will make- or break your innovation.
4. Business Models: The key to urban service innovation is a business model that is scalable and mediates different interests.
5. Rapid Prototyping and Agile Development: Urban services do not have to take 25 years to implement. How about 10 weeks?
6. Keeping more than an eye on the user: Making the citizen part of the design and innovation processes in cities.
7. Scalability: Overcoming the challenge of piloting in the first market, and expanding into early international markets.
8. The workshop will draw on rich case material, and will be conducted with the support of the City of Barcelona and the Institute for Information Industry.
