Infra-Labs are research activities that establish a collaborative process of conducting in-situ analysis and collecting data from those involved in or affected by urban strategies or community initiatives. The GUST project organized 3 Infra-Labs in Lund (Sweden), Graz (Austria), and Newcastle (UK) to investigate the workings of urban living labs.
Infra-Labs are about bringing contrasting views of the stakeholders into dialogues that allow voices and elements within any research setting to be made more visible. The approach is an innovative methodology, which allows in-depth reflection and critical engagement. The GUST project developed a policy brief that presents the main lessons from 3 Infra-Labs.
