Problems and Purpose
In general, laboratorios - either standing or temporary - bring together different actors (citizens, experts, officials etc.) around a single issue. The issue can be quite broad - such as the Laboratorio di Quartiere Gratosoglio which focusses on participatory urban innovation - or more specific - such as the laboratorios convened during the drafting of the Regional Landscape Plan of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Laboratorios can be standing organizations - like the "Laboratorios di Quartiere" in various municipalities - or temporary deliberative bodies set up during multi-stakeholder participatory initiatives.
