IN SITU Labs: creative collaborative incubators

A core of the IN SITU project is the interlink between research and practice through place-based IN SITU Labs: creative collaborative incubators – hubs for new projects, training, and networking initiatives.

The six IN SITU Labs are located in non-urban areas in countries located on the “periphery” of Europe and encompassing countries in both the south and north of Europe:

Azores archipelago, mid-Atlantic Ocean, Portugal;

Western coastal periphery, Ireland;

West Region, Iceland;

Rauma and Eurajoki, West Coast and Baltic Sea archipelago, Finland;

Valmiera county, Latvia; and

Šibenik-Knin County, Croatia.


Participatory methodologies and place-based approaches inform the research to be conducted through the Labs. Project activities in the IN SITU Lab locations will include:

  • Place-based diagnostics
  • The selection and co-monitoring of case study projects
  • Capacity-building sessions and skills development training/coaching/mentoring
  • Local horizontal networks, discussions, analytical interpretations, dialogues
