Researcher for the SISCODE Horizon 2020 project [CLOSED]


SISCODE 
(co-DEsign for Society in Innovation and Science) is an European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme that aims at understanding co-creation as a bottom-up and design-driven phenomenon that is flourishing in Europe (in fab labs, living labs, social innovations, smart cities, communities and regions), to analyse favourable conditions that support its scalability and replication and to use this knowledge to cross-fertilise RRI practices and policies. This aim is articulated along three main operational objectives:

  1. to create and run a European-wide study of existing local, regional, national and European co-creation ecosystems and to describe effective dynamics and outcomes for the implementable integration of society in science and innovation;
  2.  to experiment with design as a new system of competences on which to build capacity for implementable co-creation in RRI and STI policy-making;
  3. to understand the cultural, organisational and procedural transformations needed to embed co-creation as a design-driven approach in RRI processes and STI policy making, overcoming barriers and resistance to change.

By engaging citizens, local actors, stakeholders and policy makers SISCODE will increase knowledge on co-creation through action research, and will test the effectiveness of design methodologies to better combine co-construction (ideation) and co-production (implementation) of solutions and policies for the integration of society in science and innovation.

During the project, experiments will take place in 10 co-creation labs across Europe, each of them is a member of one of three following networks: the Fab City Foundation (managed in part by Fab Lab Barcelona), European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), and European network of science centres and museums (ECSITE). Experiments will be conducted through the implementation of co-creation journeys that will last around 18 months. In these experiments, each lab aims to tackle a specific societal challenge, and engage with it a set of stakeholders in a co-creation process from the stage of co-design where stakeholders will analyse the context, reframe the problem and envision alternatives, to that of co-production of prototypes within an iterative process.

Main Responsibilities:

The candidate will support the local SISCODE pilot held in Fab Lab Barcelona and participate in facilitating and documenting all stages of the co-creation process:

  • The phase 1 “Analysing the context” consists of gathering data about the actual and future implications of CE for makers in city, creating visualisations of the local ecosystem in term of people and flows of materials/products as well as pedagogical supports for raise awareness about complex urban food systems.
  • In the phase 2 “Re framing the problem”, the candidate will co-organise different knowledge exchange activities and start engaging the community.
  • In the phase 3 “Envision opportunities”, a maker challenge will be organised. The candidate will support the design and facilitate each step of the event.

In addition, the candidate will have to report his activity into the deliverables of the SISCODE project, contribute to research publications as well as participate in local and international events related to the project.

Finally, the candidate will work closely with IAAC and Fab City Research to ensure the coherence of the pilot with the existing and future activities of the organisation (educational, research and making).

Competences (Experience, Knowledge and Skills):

  • Action-Research skills.
  • Appetence for the Fab Lab Ecosystems as well as for RRI and co-creation activities.
  • Having a Master in Sustainable Design, Environmental Assessment and/or Circular Economy.
  • Experience and good knowledge of Urban Food systems.
  • At least one previous experience in Barcelona, especially in the Poblenou and Valldaura districts.
  • Aspiration of being a Change-Maker for ecological transitions and radical innovations.
  • Good oral and written communication skills.

Specific Requirements:

  • An EU national, or with a working permit for Spain.
  • Fluent in English and Spanish.

CONTRACT DETAILS

  • 5 months contract, to be renewed later.
  • Part time position (20 h week) based in Barcelona.

DDMP (Distributed Design Market Platform) is an EU Project that aims to further develop Fablabs.io Network by promoting and improving the connection of makers and designers with the European market.

REFLOW (constRuctive mEtabolic processes For materiaL flOWs in urban and peri-urban environments across Europe)

The vision of REFLOW is to develop circular and regenerative cities through the re-localisation of production and the re- configuration of material flows at different scales. More specifically, it will use Fab Labs and makers paces as catalysers of a systemic change in urban and peri-urban environments, which enable, visualize and regulate “four freedoms”: free movement of materials, people, (technological) knowledge and commons, in order to reduce materials consumption, maximize multifunctional use of (public) spaces and envisage regenerative practices.

Concretely, REFLOW aims at providing realistic best practices aligning market and government needs in order to create favourable conditions for the public and private sector to adopt circular principles. In order to provide critical examples of ways in which cities can adopt a CE model and reach the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, REFLOW will create new CE business models (Distributed Design Market model, On-Demand System, Corporate Hacking and Corporate Pyramid) within 6 pilot cities (Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Paris, Vejle and Cluj-Napoca) and assess their social, environmental and economic impact.

The project will make use of blockchain technologies in order to incentivise the circular practices in local ecosystems and data visualisation tools to enable continuous monitoring and optimisation of “urban metabolic” processes and rapid interventions management. Networks of sensors, urban computing and geo-localisation will capture data ensuring accuracy, integrity and interoperability of relevant data infrastructures, while data visualisation and standard templates will be available for effective communication, public consultation, and exchange of experiences.
