By accessing diverse areas of knowledge, we strive to co-create, test and prototype ideas to address complex social problems and to enable collective change. The Lab invites policy-makers to explore scenarios, connect issues and find solutions for better policies, acting as a facilitator and providing a safe-space for open interactions. It delivers insights and works side by side with the services and agencies of the European Institutions, international bodies, public organisations, universities and research centres. The Lab’s main fields of practice are foresight, behavioural insights and design-thinking.  The lab setting facilitates collaboration between policy-makers and society.

Foresight explores long-term futures and creates shared visions for policy-making.

Behavioural Insights result from multidisciplinary research in fields such as economics, psychology and neuroscience, to understand how humans behave and make decisions in everyday life.

Design thinking deploys people- and solution-centred processes to help stakeholders to innovate.
