NETICS is part of the Urban Innovation Lab, a select group of dedicated innovators who specialize in Social Capital in Transition, BioClimatic Design and Innovative Intelligent Engineering. We make a difference to people’s lives, using our creative ideas to fuel eco- and people-friendly urban development. We draw inspiration from nature, applying ecological principles to urbanism. Through collective research, design and transformation the Urban Innovation Lab has created a framework for urban development in the 21st century, based on the concept of a circular economy. Our increasingly complex and chaotic cities have become part of interdependent networks, ecosystems that we live in and have to draw resources from. NETICS stimulates the transition to a more sustainable urban environment, putting into practice a new type of socio-ecological urbanism.
