The Pilot Project
Covadonga Urban Lab, a new space for collective creation and innovation in Sabadell

With this proposal where the university is linked, from its broadest meaning, with the city and the territory, it wants to build a new space for experimentation, co-creation and collective innovation.
As an urban laboratory, it is an open space for citizens and different urban and social agents who want to collectively imagine, create, test and implement solutions to the main social, urban and environmental challenges facing the Covadonga district and the city of Sabadell in general.
