The Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació de l'Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) participated during the last week in the LabMeeting 2015, a meeting of labs organized by Medialab-Padro, which proposed to analyze the origins and evolution of this phenomenon of laboratories in the Spanish state through dialogue between experiences in different fields, ranging from art practices and social movements to educational institutions or communities of open technologies. In this context, Inés Garriga, Director of Innovation and Creativity at the Institute for Culture of Barcelona (ICUB), gave a presentation in which she introduced the Barcelona Lab as "an open laboratory of culture, knowledge, creativity and innovation takinging the citizens into consideration."
"The main objective is to encourage citizen innovation through collaboration between the world of arts, science and technology. It’s an initiative of the Institute for Culture of Barcelona to bring together the academic, business and voluntary sector that drives a model of cultural citizen-centered innovation," said Garriga. The director of Innovation at ICUB also explained at the Barcelona Lab the two major future challenges arising. "Can you find, beyond this early stage of experimentation, a space that allows you to consolidate governance and propose specific policies for the promotion of cultural innovation and the innovation culture?" She asked. The second challenge was posed by Garriga: "Can Barcelona Lab become the innovation model of the city of Barcelona? Can a city like Barcelona naturally incorporate its existing innovation model, citizen participation and social innovation as key elements and priorities for transformation and growth?"
