This workshops builds on the theoretical considerations presented on Friday ("Why Space
Matters for Collaborative Ìnnovation (Net)work(s)", 15:00) and breaks them down into
concrete real-world examples in a hands-on workshop format. We will use the framework
and approach of "Enabling Spaces" for working on the case of an university/school. The
Enabling Space is designed as a multi-dimensional space, in which architectural/physical,
social, cognitive, technological, epistemological, cultural, intellectual, emotional and other
factors are considered and integrated, aiming to support knowledge and innovation
processes.
