Current research project

I am working in a multidisciplinary team providing support to participatory action research projects. Those projects are funded by the Brussels Capital Region (through the Brussels Research and Innovation Agency) and aim at proposing innovative solutions to current challenges faced by urban residents. I am more specifically in charge of those fostering the resilience of the Brussels Capital Region.

Together with the projects members, I build common knowledge and expertise on what urban resilience means on the ground. We - as a team - develop a quality relationship based approach, which means understanding brakes and leverages in each participatory action research and, from there, design customized solutions.
