As a result of their scale and range of activities, universities have a tremendous impact on the neighbourhoods around them.
The LOOPER Living Labs serve as new models for experimental design and innovation at the urban and community level. They can address practical problems such as air quality, road safety, noise, crime or greenspace. The Living Labs are based on the involvement of stakeholders, continuous monitoring of changes and direct consideration of their impact on the implementation process. There are Living Labs in Brussels, Manchester and Verona.
