2021 edition: focus on coworking spaces

By referring to the COST Action CA18214, in which lecturers and organizers are involved, and by presenting preliminary outcomes of the CA18214, the participants of the summer school will get a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge on the new working spaces such as coworking spaces and new trends in the local and international contexts.

The nature of work has been evolving recently, along with the way working spaces are used. This dynamic has major implications for working space design, management and location that need to respond to new challenges.

This course will assist students, practitioners and researchers to engage with these ongoing evolutions. Participants will learn to:
- integrate different disciplines in a sound reasoning around the workplace, with a focus on coworking spaces;
- manage the planning, programming, and executing phases of a workplace change process;
manage planning and policy tools in fostering coworking space diffusion;
- picture the future evolution of workplaces and its impact at the building and local scale, both in core and peripheral areas.

From the last edition…

SSWM has been better than expected for 90% of participants in 2020

SSWM is an innovative initiative for all of the participants in 2020

Overall satisfaction with the SSWM experience is confirmed by all the participants in 2020

It was highly informative, giving me several perspectives of achieving quality workplace management.

I’ve never enjoyed learning as much as I did over the past two weeks.

The expectation about the amount of information learned was even surpassed, I did not expect to face also themes regarding interior design.

It ended up developing my instantaneous problem assessment and solving skills on a professional level.

I got a lot out of the program and the case study was the perfect way to apply what I learned right away.

The organization was perfect and thought about different aspects: learning process, practical issues and related visits to workplaces.
