The Carbon Resource Energy and Adaption Toolbox Europe
Project Title: CREATE — Embedding advanced urban material stock methods within governance processes to enable circular economy and cities resilience
Work Package Structure
The CREATE project follows a set of strategic underpinnings that connect the different work packages in three dimensions:
- A living lab approach that is used throughout all work packages and allows for an integrated co-production of the project with stakeholders from the quadruple helix;
- A multi-scalar capacity building approach, where the use of the living labs as the focal point of the work developed, complemented by the dissemination of knowledge to fellow cities and an outreach to urban networks in Europe, will allow for an optimized scalable process;
- A tailored and adaptable approach that is based on the pre-existing conditions of the urban living labs and fellow cities, i.e, existing data, methods and governance procedures already being utilized by the stakeholders and providing them with new knowledge.
Through these three dimensions of concepts, the 6 work packages within CREATE project are structured and interlinked as below:
Funding programThe CREATE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 875022.
JPI Urban Europe definition:
There are 4 key components of a Living Lab.
Steps of LivingLabs
There are 2 phases with 6 steps respectively for a Living Lab, starting with a pre phase and following by a development phase
- Nijmegen in the Netherlands
- Gothenburg in Sweden
- Olof Asklunds gata
Redevelopment of an industrial area in Södra Änggården into a residential area with apartment buildings, a park, a square, a school, etc. Traffic Waste and Wastewater office of Gothenburg will be involved in a project that concerns all streets and public land, including other infrastructure such as water and wastewater, electricity, energy, etc.

Project results/ Deliverables
- Develop and visualize an overview of material stocks and flows that are part of the built environment,
- Provide tailored software solutions to cities that support a circular built environment, and
- Co-create governance arrangements that enable a broader participation of stakeholders, experimentation with decision-support information, and the upscaling of best practices.
