The “Mapping social innovation and collaboration in housing – Co-Lab Mapping” is a project developed in collaboration with TU Delft, Urbamonde, and with support of the Dutch architecture firm Inbo. The Co-Lab Mapping Project is a first scientific step to provide a validated categorisation of different collaborative housing forms in Europe. It also starts aggregating data on collaborative housing provided by national umbrella organisations, according to a set of pre-established filters. The aim of this project is to create the basis that helps compare and analyse the most salient characteristics of collaborative housing, and so bring current scientific and applied debates further. The project focuses on nine countries where collaborative housing forms are well established and represented by national umbrella organisations; namely: Belgium, Denmark, England and Wales, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
