Over a period of more than 3 years, together with partners from the private, public and scientific various sector, we have developed the Eurbanlab library for showcasing, now containing nearly 300 urban innovations in Europe, and the Eurbanlab assessment methodology. The assessment is a unique indicator-based tool that provides stakeholders such as building companies, project developers etc. with a means to (1) evaluate the sustainability impacts of their proposed development plan or project and (2) determine whether the innovative solutions are suitable for upscaling and further dissemination to other areas.
The Eurbanlab project was finished by the end of 2014 and has resulted in the start-up company JCS owned by Roger Toussaint. JCS holds the right to exploit the tools developed within Eurbanlab.
In April 2016 the announcement was made through a press release that JCS/EURBANLAB and Construction21 signed a collaborative partnership to expand their services for the European sustainable building sector. The two organizations join their forces to increase best practice dissemination and the exposure of innovations for sustainable cities.
