The main focus of this three-day search conference is how we, from our own position in our organisations and society, can address the issue and experience of difference, in whatever form.  It is aimed at professionals who are dealing with difference in their everyday practice, or want to give more attention to this theme in what they do and how they do it. 

Over the three days, the participants - drawn from mediators, facilitators, process consultants and scholar-researchers - will engage in a reflective dialogue on how we frame the macro-evolutions we are part of, as well as the challenges within our own sphere of influence concerning processes and dynamics that enable connection and collaboration beyond the ‘us’ and ‘them’.

In Europa werken meer dan 20 miljoen mensen in de gezondheidszorg en sociale sector. Een op tien heeft een job in de gezondheidszorg.  Genoeg om te beseffen dat de gezondheidszorgsector valt of staat met zijn medewerkers. De Europese Unie heeft in de voorbije 10 jaar sterk geïnvesteerd om dit menselijk kapitaal in kaart te brengen en het beleid te stroomlijnen. België speelt hierin een vooraanstaande rol. Denken we maar aan EU-projecten zoals RN4CAST of de Joint Action on Health Workforce Planning and Forecasting die beide vanuit België werden gecoördineerd. Maar ook de WHO en de OECD zijn actief op dit terrein.

De doelstelling van deze cursus is om lessen te trekken uit 10 jaar Europees onderzoek en beleid op vlak van Health Workforce voor het Belgisch en Vlaams gezondheidszorgbeleid en het HRM beleid in zorgorganisaties.

Place: KU Leuven, Faculty of Architecture, Campus Sint-Lucas, Paleizenstraat 65-67, B-1030 Brussels.

Research in the fields of architecture and the arts has developed substantially over the last decades. ARENA (Architectural Research European Network Association) is now one of the major organisations focusing on research, and this conference on ‘Impact by Designing’ is the Third Annual Conference to be organized by the network.

ARENA is an open, inclusive and comprehensive network for architectural researchers across Europe. ARENA offers a shared platform that aims to promote, support, develop and disseminate high-quality research in all fields of architecture in the widest sense, including its links to building technology, environmental design, sustainable development, interior design, landscape architecture and urban design/urbanism, operating in domains from science and technology through to arts and humanities. To do so it will work alongside all existing bodies to promote the quality, breadth and significance of research to the key institutions involved.

The conference on ‘Impact by Designing’ strives to explore those developments in research that have evolved around creative practices – specifically focusing on architecture, design, arts and music. It will also be the fourth conference in the cycle that started with ‘The Unthinkable Doctorate’ in 2005 and was successfully followed by the ‘Communicating (by) Design’ in 2009 and ‘Knowing (by) Designing’ in 2013, all of them hosted at the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture in Brussels. The 2017 conference aims to take a further step in developing research in those disciplines where creative practice plays an important role, and hence to make a substantial impact within the field.

The concept of ‘impact’ is becoming more and more important in society, not least in relation to research. But what do we understand by impact? Everything seems to impact on everything else, and so if something cannot be seen to have made an impact, then it is considered of less value. This raises important challenges and questions. Why does research have to impact? Can we demonstrate that our research efforts, whether in academia or in creative professional practice, make a difference? Does our research genuinely impact more widely upon society, architecture and the arts? If our endeavors do have an impact, then in what way? What can we learn from our experiences for the future? Does it help to change our perspectives about the nature and purpose of research?

This 2017 ARENA conference on ‘Impact by Designing’ at the Sint-Lucas Brussels Campus therefore aims to investigate ways in which research, education, industry/practice and society all impact upon each other, and the aspects to be discussed include the following questions:

  • In what ways are research, education, industry/practice and society influencing each other, that is, if they do at all?
  • Is the increased focus on research impacting on education? And on society?
  • In return, is education impacting on research? And on society?
  • Does professional practice impact on education?
  • Does research change creative professional practice?
  • Is society impacting on our research endeavors? And if so, how?
  • Do industry and creative professional practice impact on innovation in the field/discipline?

In short, what are the mutual interactions and relationships between research, education, practice and society? With this in mind, which experiences or ideas about impact would you like to share at the conference? What is there of value for us to discuss, analyse and project into the future?

The conference organisers welcome all relevant contributions, from academia as well as from professional practice, that address the abovementioned topics from across the fields of architecture, design, arts and music. They especially welcome those contributions that also intend to communicate their findings through a linked exhibition. Past conferences have shown that these exhibitions create a more intense interaction and deeper level of communication with the audience. The organisers will therefore provide studio space in the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture for these exhibitions, but regret they are unable to provide any financial support. Funds for mounting the work need to be found by the exhibitors themselves.

While participatory planning is widely hailed as a prerequisite for well-managed urban development and sustainability, this ideal can be difficult to implement in practice, due to the complexity of interactions between stakeholders and the difficulty of public users to realise a tangible ‘hand-on’ contribution. Incubators of Public Spaces aims to expand the opportunities for civic engagement in urban design through the creation of a user friendly online platform as an aid to local option generation and selection.

By combining software for design, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding, the project provides a way to connect communities meaningfully with their physical environment, enabling contributors to navigate through an accurate visualisation of local public spaces which they can remodel interactively and share with others. Then, after a participatory selection process, the participants can raise the necessary resources to make their vision become a reality.

The on-going development of the Incubator platform responds to three urban living labs in Europe: Turin, Brussels and London. Through a range of interactive workshops, engagement in the field and collaboration with local actors, the Incubators researchers mediate between the technological advancements and local needs and desires. Later on these labs will form the ground to test and further improve the implementation of the Incubator platform.

The Incubators conference intends to explore these issues in the context of the wider potential for urban living labs to deliver better, more tangible public participation in the urban environment. We especially focus on the crucial role urban living labs play to mediate between the everyday practice and the innovation of digital tools in impacting on public spaces. How can living labs introduce and induce new developments? What processes are needed to make living labs successful?

Furthermore the conference wants to explore the potential of urban participatory design. Can new participatory tools trigger towards a new turn in urbanism? What new visions are needed and how can crowdsourcing engage actors and contribute to spaces? Can new technological means empower civic self-organisation and how does this impact the authority of the public power in planning?

The conference topics include: // What are the relationships between actors, instruments and spaces? What role can crowdsourcing play for public spaces?

// What communication is needed for to support participation processes? How are structures, ideas and proposals visualized and applied in urban living labs?

// What happens when urban planners are no longer the only ones holding the pen and citizens become empowered to self-organize?

// How can living labs introduce and induce new developments through micro-interventions?

// What processes are needed to make living labs successful? How does this method relates to typologies of actors, their needs and motivations?

We especially welcome all types of actors in participation: from researchers in academia to practitioners, public institutions, civic associations, and citizens involved in a living lab or participation process.
