  3. 3. Medialab UGR Medialab UGR is a living and changing citizen laboratory, which evolves as its projects develop and adapt to social needs and demands, working in democratic processes, public policies, social participation and social and public innovation, as a response to the main challenges of our society. We work on different initiatives with a research, digital and innovative approach; with the aim of generating knowledge with different social groups. We are experts in innovation and participation methodologies such as social innovation labs. We generate impact globally through our research and in the local and regional communities.
  4. 4. Why social innovation labs? A social innovation laboratory is an instrument to think together with an experimentation and prototyping approach, combining reflection and orientation to action, thinking openly about our communities with awareness of the global, with the aim of generating responses to the complex challenges of our time, whether in neighborhoods, in public institutions, in companies, in organizations in general, in society as a whole.
  5. 5. Our social context ● Uncertainty: managing ignorance and multiple knowledge. ● Need to strengthen democracy: participation and the institutional. ● Connections on multiple dimensions: physical and digital; reconfiguration of vertical and horizontal relations. ● Integration of multiple forms of intelligence to create stronger institutions: collective, expert, algorithmic, political intelligence. ● Commitment to the local and the global. ● Ethics of care.
  6. 6. Labs Laboratories can be considered as: ● Institutions. For example: Medialab UGR, LAAAB or Medialab Prado. ● Projects. For example, those resulting from a specific call for laboratories. ● Attitude, methodology, philosophy. Types of laboratories: ● Citizen laboratories. ● Government laboratories / Govlabs. ● Living Labs. ● Fablabs / Makerspaces / Medialabs / Hacklabs. ● Other types of social laboratories.
  7. 7. Our values ● Proactivity and oriented towards action. From consumer to prosumer but within a citizen perspective. ● Culture of participation and care. ● Diversity and inclusiveness. ● Digital culture. ● Open source projects. ● Local action and global connection. Scalability. ● Different types of knowledge. ● Way of learning: process and results go hand in hand. ● Documentation of the process as part of the learning. ● Cooperation versus competition.

  9. 9. LabIN Granada - a Citizen Lab for Granada LabIN Granada - a Citizen Lab for Granada ( It is a collaborative social innovation project focused on generating ideas, prototyping solutions and developing projects for the city of Granada and its province. The lab has carried out participatory actions with the support of different local and provincial institutions.

  13. 13. Facultad Cero It is a think-tank devoted to the future of higher education. It is an open forum for the meeting of different stakeholders who wish to contribute to what the university institution could look like. It played a relevant role during COVID 19 by coordinating actions of more than 20 universities, sharing resources and training.
  14. 14. The Facultad Cero Process invites us to rethink and redesign the University through two ways: ● the detection of areas for improvement and their debate; and ● the generation of concrete proposals for our university and its environment. The process consists of a series of meetings and living labs that aim at the co-creation of prototypes by the university community as a whole (students, PAS, PDI) and the general public that contribute to improving the University of Granada and the way it relates to its environment based on an open and critical discussion.
  15. 15. Raise a debate on the challenges and problems and the opportunities facing the university, and on the other hand, on the basis of co-creation, generate proposals that provide a solution, in whole or in part, to these challenges. main objective specific objectives • To generate proposals that help improve the University of Granada. • To promote the participation of all groups of the university community in matters that concern them. • More democratic and participatory university. • To create a space for dialogue and a genuine epistemological approach to address the university as a whole. • To establish alliances and connections between social actors around specific themes that have the University as a common element.

  18. 18. Facultad Cero All universities that wish to participate in this initiative, as well as all faculty who individually wish to do so, are called upon to participate. We also wanto to hear the voices of the students. The values of this project are: innovation, openness, collaboration, critical thinking, and a clearly proactive and constructive approach. Two main characteristics: ● Bottom-up approach to complement the institutional approach. ● Participatory approach.

  25. 25. UnInPública - Universities for public innovation Red UnInPública (, a network for public innovation from universities. This project aims to identify, connect, analyse and disseminate university initiatives for knowledge transfer to the public sector. In May 2020, an international online meeting was held, attended by more than 300 people, which resulted in the creation of the Manifesto Universities for Public Innovation. More than 50 entities from Europe and Latin America (labs, NGOs, public administrations and universities) have joined this project.

  27. 27. Social Innovation Labs The Social Innovation Laboratories, was a virtual process in pandemic time, during 2020 and 2021. The participants proposed different themes to work in the labs. Of the 58 proposals received, a total of 44 Laboratories were created successfully, by people from Spain and other countries, such as the US, Mexico, Brazil, China, Italy or Guinea. Almost 400 people enrolled in them, mostly university students, teachers and researchers, but citizens in general. They have worked on innovative solutions to problems related to creativity, sports, ecology and the environment, education, inclusion, health or tourism.

  34. 34. What do we do? This initiative is set in the 2030 Agenda, the Urban Agenda, and the post-pandemic recovery plans. To this end, our proposal is developed in three phases: Phase 1: Data analysis: through the web platform (currently under development) that connects more than 1000 lines of action of the urban agendas developed in the province of Granada with the research done at the University of Granada. Phase 2: Call for Participation in the pairing scheme UGR - territory. Phase 3: Co-creation laboratories (our living labs) in all kind of topics: 1. discover opportunities for transferring existing knowledge, 2. generate opportunities to design new research projects or other forms of collaboration, 3. design service-learning opportunities so that university students contribute to the transfer of scientific knowledge while transforming the territory.
