«gE.CO Living Lab» is the research and innovation european project that has received funding from the European Union’s HORIZON 2020. In this three year program, Patrizia Di Monte is Project Partner of the University of Turín as Project Leader, University of New Castle, University of Barcelona, Community Land Trust Bruxelles, Open Lab Athens, Spazi Indecisi and Eutropian GMBH.
gE.CO Living Lab is an exchange platform for formal groups or informal communities of citizens who manage fab-lab, hubs, incubators, co-creation spaces, social centres created in regenerated urban voids. These innovative practices are considered generative commons, which need different legal and economic models and tools. Universities, non-profit and for-profit organizations are working in this project together. The gE.CO digital platform will bring together generative commons and map citizens’ initiatives, as well as engaged public institutions. The website will display best practices, recommendations as well as legal solutions and a tool kit to support the emergence of new generative commons.
