The rise of the smart city comes with a seemingly endless array of possibilities, but is also accompanied by uncertainties, dilemmas and concerns. All parties should be in this debate, but there are many questions how to engage (all of) them effectively. There is a need for new methods to discuss the impacts of emerging technologies, engaging a variety of people and perspectives.
NEMO City Lab is a new public engagement and research program that allows citizens to discuss the impact of (Smart City) technologies and co-create responsible future scenario`s for the grant challenges that cities face. We connect stakeholders such as living labs, municipalities, businesses and scientists to citizens in meaningful dialogues and co-creation.
We develop formats that allow for inclusive and broadly accessible engagement.
