LeNS Labs

A network of LeNS Labs is in-progress to be established in Partner Countries (Brazil, Africa, Mexico, China, India) as equipped spaces accessible to students, teachers, researchers as well as local interested stakeholders to use a set of tools, resources and facilities to support Design for Sustainability (DfS) research, education and practice. Other LeNS Labs worldwide have been opened and are listed below (though not funded by EU under the Erasmus+ project).

LeNS Labs are aimed at:
the dissemination, the sharing and the development of knowledge-base and know-how on Design for Sustainability, supported by this Platform of platforms;
promoting research activities, teaching and internationalization, being connected to the multipolar worldwide scheme of LeNS_Labs, as well as with local and global HEIs, by adopting an intercultural approach to favour knowledge cross-fertilisation;
strengthening the link with the local productive sectors, acting as a hub.
