Onderzoekslunch: Neighborhood agenda

In short


9 March 2020


12:30 - 13:30


Main campus, Innovation Playground

Interactive lecture by Jos van Leeuwen, professor Civic Technology and Arnold Quanjer, lecturer CMD, organized by Centre of Expertise Governance of Urban Transitions.

An agenda for the neighborhood: what are the most important issues to be addressed in your neighborhood?
What opportunities and challenges are there, what improvements are needed and what problems need to be solved?

The municipality of The Hague wants to draw up a neighborhood agenda in every neighborhood together with the residents. How do you organize this process? During this research lunch, we will jointly investigate how residents can join in the conversation, how they can participate in their own way, how ideas and complaints can come to a vision, and how dialogue can be conducted about this, in community centers and online.

The research group on Civic Technology develops knowledge on designing and applying interactive technology that constructively contributes to society, in areas such as democracy, citizen participation, smart city development, community-building, and social media.

Jos van Leeuwen graduated on Building Information Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology. After his studies, he worked part-time in the software industry and on his PhD research at Eindhoven University of Technology, where he continued to do research as associate professor and managed the master programme on Design & Decision Support Systems. Since 2011, Jos works at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, at the Faculty of IT & Design, initially as associate professor in the Communication & Multimedia Design programme. Since May 2019, he is full professor of Civic Technology.

Researching how interactive technology is increasingly weaving itself into the fabric of daily life and how artificial intelligence can be deployed in a responsible way is the main interest of Arnold Jan Quanjer. He holds an MSc in Media Technology from the University of Leiden and has extensive experience as a UX designer both in a commercial and governmental setting
