Lab.IS is an interface/extension unit of the Lusíada Center for Research in Social Work and Social Intervention (CLISSIS), and shares a cross-fertilization structure with the school’s other research groups. It aims to promote inclusion and socio-territorial innovation.
This Laboratory is a space for sharing ideas and creating open solutions. In its activity of innovation and intervention in the community, Lab.IS conceives, plans, executes, and evaluates projects of innovation and socio-territorial development.
Its intervention is based on strategies of active participation, articulating people, private and public entities, relating capacities and opportunities to realize innovative solutions that respond to the needs and aspirations of the people.
It promotes linkages between and among partners, joining companies, associations, IPSS, and universities or research centers, co-constructing life projects and identities, contributing to a socially just society, and focusing on sustainable well-being.
