Urbanization and climate change sets completely new demands on urban development. Through the Innovation Arena "A Working Lab", a unique environment for development is created, allowing different actors to collaborate on innovations in order to meet current and future urban challenges. Welcome to the intelligent learning environment of the future.
Purpose and goal
The goal is to create an innovation arena where different people and groups can meet in creative and innovative ways. The purpose is to work with innovations. The arena is a meeting place for collaboration but at the same time a place where a variety of research projects are displayed. They are developed, tested, built and then evaluated and developed further.
RISE contributes with expertise in energy and resource-efficient buildings, digital infrastructure, the learning environment of the future, sustainable mobility and logistics. RISE also contributes as an innovation partner in the working process as well as a researcher and is part of the process in creating this place for valuable meetings and developing work processes.
A Working Lab is built and owned by Akademiska hus. Parts of the RISE staff will have their offices located in the building.
Urbanization and climate change put completely new demands on urban development, especially in our cities. How do you design the city buildings of tomorrow, a place where people like to work and that makes us perform our utmost? What are the possibilities to reach the location in the most environmental-friendly way?
To develop a model for the intelligent office and learning environment of the future - A Working Lab - simultaneously as the building itself is being built at Johanneberg Science Park, Gothenburg in Sweden.
Some of the projects that are being created within the framework of A Working Lab:
With the building as a lab, new sustainable products, services and business models are tested and developed. So far, more than 20 innovation projects have been started in everything from energy-efficient construction to the future's learning environments and digital infrastructure. A step towards a sustainable world with the individual in focus.
