Innovation Spaces

Recent years have witnessed the rapid spread of coworking spaces, technology hubs, hackerspaces, makerspaces, and similar physical places that nurture creativity, collaboration, and innovation. These places excel at creating environments — facilities, activities, connections, technologies — where individuals can learn, create, start businesses, and solve local challenges. This project explores the global rise of these spaces, the features that make them effective, and the strategies and policies that support their establishment and growth. Research outputs will include tools for libraries and other community organizations wishing to create innovation spaces in their facilities.
