OUR OBJECTIVES

Task 1.1 will enable the project team to gain a deeper understanding of existing knowledge co-production and utilisation capacities, and gaps in ITD research, particularly with respect to the SDG11.

Task 1.1 will enable the project team to gain a deeper understanding of existing knowledge co-production and utilisation capacities, and gaps in ITD research, particularly with respect to the SDG11. The PI will establish a procedure to structure the contribution of all other partners to efficiently capture knowledge from across our expert consortium. We will explicitly include the social constraints / impediments to technological development as one thread of investigations. This will reveal key points at which ITD can or can't happen. We will review both seminal and recent publications from the ITD community to explore which methods and methodologies are being (and have been) used and by which disciplines / in which regions / which eventual TRUST partners. We will also review the ITD strategy of the internal POLITO/UNITO interdepartmental centers. This will help us identify the key actors, disciplines, theoretical perspectives, topics, primary thematic and methodological approaches, and crucially reveal where the gaps (for exploitation by the Platform). This review activity will involve producing a final review article (D1.1).

Task 1.2 will draw on field-study across three of selected gold practice labs for ITD research and education on SDG11, following the T1.1 outcomes.  Literature review regarding integrated transdisciplinary laboratories using practical skill sharing and development, conceptual maps and actual stakeholders / spaces / activities interactions will be conducted. Surveys and semi-structured interviews with teachers, tutors and students will be searched along to be then applied in WP3 to understand current ITD related priorities and the implications of involved partners' needs.

Task 1.3 will draw on the experience of Non-architecture in running an open competition, to envision the SDGs city.  The call will be open to every professional from any background, with the only constraint to imagine and represent what the city claimed by the SDG11 will be related to any other SDGs to engage with the most diverse and creative group of fresh energies from all EU envisioning the future SDG11 related city.
