Fondazione per L’innovazione urbana (FIU) is a multidisciplinary urban regeneration research, development, co-production and communication centre working to build the city of the future. It aims to promote relationships between local government, universities, firms, the tertiary sector and citizens. 

FIU’s work is designed to foster, guide, facilitate and experiment city transformation processes in both policy planning-civic governance and design terms. It does so by introducing process and design innovation to administrative mechanisms, shining the spotlight on the neighbourhood, environmental transition and cultural democracy.

Role in INCA: The FIU team is leading WP7 and is participating in different tasks of WP9.
