1 innovation: what makes it urban? GRAZIA CONCILIO Department of Architecture and Urban Studies, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

2 OUTLINE! The failed promises of urban smartness! What innovation for urban challenges! Cities as enablers of innovation! How do cities scale up innovation?! Towards purposeful learning cities! Quoted references

3 The failed promises of urban smartness! Is ICT infrastructuring the (unique) key for smart innovation?! Are highly ICT infrastructured environments and services able to meet citizens needs experienced in everyday life inside urban environments?! Can approaches to urban innovation strictly driven by technologies be the best way to develop programmes of urban intelligence able to deal with contemporary urban challenges?

4 The failed promises of urban smartness! Is ICT infrastructuring the (unique) key for smart innovation?! Are highly ICT infrastructured environments and services able to meet citizens needs experienced in everyday life inside urban environments?! Can approaches to urban innovation strictly driven by technologies be the best way to develop programmes of urban intelligence able to deal with contemporary urban challenges? May be not! Where is learning?

8 What innovation for urban challenges

9 What innovation for urban challenges

10 What innovation for urban challenges

11 What innovation for urban challenges WE CALL THIS! FRUGAL INNOVATION (Molinari, 2016)! CITIZENS DRIVEN INNOVATION (Eskelinen et al., 2015)! PROBLEMS DRIVEN INNOVATION

12 What innovation for urban challenges Innovation in a city CANNOT BE! financially and environmentally expensive! independent from local culture and life standards/practices (MORE OF THE SAME IS NOT ENOUGH!)! a solution looking for a problem (marked/technology driven)

13 What innovation for urban challenges even when INNOVATION IS SCALED UP TO THE URBAN, REGIONAL OR NATIONAL SCALE, this DOES NOT GUARANTEE it solves urgent critical urban/global challenges we NEED DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION, but NOT WHATEVER INNOVATION we need innovation that is able to INVERT CURRENT TRENDS OF GLOBAL CHALLENGES

14 What innovation for urban challenges Just one example Many cities announced their OD strategies as a relevant step towards innovation Are disclosed data really relevant for dealing with important, challenging problems? What innovation can they nurture?

15 Cities as enablers of innovation! MARKET: A DOOR TO INNOVATION SCALING-UP. It relates to innovation trading and deals creation.! RESOURCE POT: A SHOP OF RESOURCES, A KNOWLEDGE REPOSITORY. It relates to assets available within a city framework both in terms of quality and variety: Cognitive resources Financial resources Relational resources Spatial resources

16 Cities as enablers of innovation! IDEARIUM: A TURBOLENT GAS OF IDEAS AND BRILLIANT INITIATIVES It takes into account the diffuse ability of a city to generate solutions to the high number of problems it generates; and the capacity of cities to catalyse creative energies, mainly by attracting skilled work-force.! PROBLEMS LAB: WHERE SOLUTIONS CAN BE TESTED The wicked (or ill-defined) nature of urban problems can only be fully understood by attempting their solutions.! POLICY ARENA: THE SPACE OF POLITICAL DISCOURSE, Meant as public debate on the common good, shaping the political agenda. It is the space of conflict, of social and civic learning. Of institutional innovation

17 Cities as enablers of innovation resource pot problems lab idearium ACTIVATORS innovation spheres political arena the urban market place RECEPTORS

18 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition

19 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition epiphanies ideas problems intuitions

20 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition Prototyping/Testing epiphanies ideas problems intuitions

21 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition Prototyping/Testing epiphanies ideas problems intuitions (Geels and Shot, 2007)

22 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition Prototyping/Testing epiphanies ideas problems intuitions (Geels and Shot, 2007)

23 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition Prototyping/Testing epiphanies ideas problems intuitions (Geels and Shot, 2007)

24 How do cities scale up innovation? inception development transition Prototyping/Testing epiphanies ideas problems intuitions (Geels and Shot, 2007)

25 How do cities scale up innovation? Scaling up is resource consuming It may introduce changes which are not relevant And often those changes are conflictual, not synergic, in opposition

26 Towards purposeful learning cities Innovation schizofreny

27 Towards purposeful learning cities (RE)discovering the role of visions (Albrechts, 2016), the relevance of innovation alignment strategies, importance of sound collective/civic values

28 Towards purposeful learning cities towards relevant systemic changes (Wieczorek and Hekkert, 2012) not a mere methodological issue (Brown, 2009)

29 Towards purposeful learning cities innovation lab consequences acting discovering previous mental model co-designing new mental model not enough changes in action

30 Towards purposeful learning cities SCALING UP feedbacks (selective) scaling up to be conceived as an experiment so to make it a collective (urban) learning environment knowledge (output of innovation) to be a common good and not a competitive resource feedbacks for the innovation to be urban we need critical learning cities (McFarlene, 2011)
