UrbanCo-WORK project aims at investigating the emergence and wider impacts of collaborative workspaces (CWS) in a critical urban studies and economic geography perspective, through three interrelated scientific objectives:
(1) provide a better understanding of the emergence and variations of CWS in the context of rising social and economic challenges in different institutional, political and cultural contexts;
(2) critically analyse the impact of such projects for their participants/users and for urban/neighbourhood development processes;
(3) facilitate transnational learning and replication of social and cultural innovation in the context of co-production, extrapolating new knowledge and practices to co-working in the Greek context and other aspects of urban governance.
UrbanCo-WORK hosts a 2 days conference on the Future of Collaborative Spaces. It will take place in Athens, the 23rd and 24th of January.
Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on a multi-scalar and interdisciplinary approach.
