Second Call for CIVIS Open Lab Projects

Agenda des appels à projets CIVIS

Aix-Marseille University's CIVIS Open Lab was launched on September 9 and brought together the project leaders selected during the first call for projects and nearly 60 representatives from the region. The AMU Open Lab continues its local development with the launch of its second call for projects!

The CIVIS Open Labs

Anchored in the heart of its territory, the Open Lab is an incubator for citizen-oriented projects. By initiating dialogue with local stakeholders, these work spaces allow for the joint exploration and development of solutions to local and regional challenges.

In concrete terms, the CIVIS AMU Open Lab is already:

  • A multidisciplinary team, with expertise in entrepreneurship, academia, associations, and service learning
  • 4 high-impact projects:
    Vénères & Solidaires and GET LIT, 2 educational projects that recognize the potential of young people, who are already actors in the world of tomorrow.
    Interstice and Smart & Civic Port, 2 associative urban planning projects that bet on collective intelligence and urban democracy to build the city of tomorrow together.
  • A network of transition actors: a dozen public and private members of the CIVIS Local Advisory Council
  • A privileged access to 9 cities, 9 universities and 9 European Open Labs

The second call for projects

This second call for projects is open to teachers-researchers, students and staff of Aix-Marseille University and local actors in the Aix-Marseille area. The projects supported will benefit from assistance in setting up projects and innovation, international visibility and a possible "CIVIS" label.
