Here, there is a selection of relevant projects in relation to public and civic engagement: LabIN Granada - a Citizen Lab for Granada (http://labingranada.org/) LabIN stands for Laboratory of Innovation. The project is conceived as a citizen laboratory for Granada focused on local citizen innovation. It implements a methodology based on the generation of ideas, the prototyping of solutions and the development of projects for a territory. It entails a network of citizen participation, which has two dimensions: Physical space (like a laboratory for citizen social innovation for Granada) and Digital space (a global platform for the generation of ideas and the development of prototypes and projects. This platform is under consideration at the Regional Government in Andalusia (Spain) to implement the future Social Participation Law.
