Operational staff

Looking to work together with researchers, students and/or partners on a sustainability challenge on campus? UULabs mobilises and connects people to co-create solutions for complex sustainability challenges.

To see past, present and future living labs taking place on campus, take a look at the campus map and portfolio.

What I find interesting about working with students through living labs is the scientific approach. We normally work on several projects at the same time, so we don’t always have time to rethink certain choices. A couple of years ago we got students to look into what is more sustainable; paper towels or a hand dryer? We used the resulting literature study for years to justify the choice that we made within our organisation.
