The 8th General Assembly was held in Messina, hosted by the Municipality and AlmaDigit. The two-day meeting included a workshop among Urbanite partners in which we will reflect on the co-creation process carried out and the lessons we have learned, demos of functionalities and challenges from the technical perspective (mobility simulation, data processing and policy recommendation support), and the planning for the upcoming next months of the project.
The activities related to co-creation in URBANITE project are mainly performed through what we call SoPoLabs (Social Policy Labs) which see the involvement of the stakeholders which revolve around urban mobility. In Messina SoPoLabs have brought stakeholders and policy makers to discuss about common issues, in order to find shared solutions on urban mobility for the Municipality. Since the start of the URBANITE project, three SoPoLabs have been held and they have brought interesting results.
