Pilot objectives:

  • The Copenhagen pilot aims at exploring how to combine the urgent needs of urban development while preserving the industrial heritage and its local communities in the former industrial area of Copenhagen Northwest. The main objective is to foster the creation of a distributed network of existing hubs capable of preserving this mixed and vibrant landscape while fostering sustainable and inclusive urban communities and environments.


  • Main challenges of the pilot area 
  • Two main challenges guide the work of the Copenhagen Pilot:


      1. There is a presence of many different stakeholders and initiatives in the area but a low level of interaction and exchange of knowledge and resources among local actors. 
      2. Local creative and production businesses struggle to access affordable spaces due to the gentrification process the area is undergoing. 


  • Addressing the challenges 
  • The Copenhagen pilot team is addressing these challenges through three strategic missions:


      1. Testing different types of business models to facilitate access to affordable spaces thus maintaining a thriving neighborhood. 
      2. Testing a distributed hub model, structured as a network of existing spaces that aims to support local initiatives and foster exchanges and opportunities among stakeholders. 
      3. Developing a collaboration with local educational institutions to support social inclusion, innovation and production in the pilot area.

Centrinno Focus Group: Workshops Thematic Focus

  When: from March 9 until November 23  

CENTRINNO is launching a Focus Group series to external stakeholders to present and discuss our approaches to specific thematic challenges. The initiative has the twofold objective of engaging with important actors to receive feedback on the validation of our concept and tools, but also it aims to be an inspiration window where external stakeholders can reflect on the possible uptake or adoption of similar approaches in different contexts.

An opportunity to exchange views and discover innovative approaches on themes that are common to our jobs and professional challenges. Even more interestingly, the CENTRINNO Focus Group activities aim to be the base room to create new synergies on specific topics, or even new networks of collaboration and future project opportunities.


The CENTRINNO Focus Group consists of a series of five online workshops on the following key topics and with the following timeline:

  ? Heritage: 9 March 2023 at 1pm CET ? Social Inclusion: 20th April 2023 ? Circularity: 15th June 2023 ? Vocational Training: 14th September 2023 ? Fab City Hubs: 23rd November 2023 Download the PDF for an overview on all the workshop thematic focus.
