We are three participatory design researchers working across the Öresund region between Denmark and Southern Sweden in Scandinavia. We have all been part of Malmö Living Labs at Malmö University (http://medea.mah.se/malmo-living-labs/). Here we worked together for quite a long time on questions of participation, design and (social) change primarily with focus on the public sector in the contexts of Region Skåne and the City of Malmö.
Currently, Mette Agger Eriksen is located at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design (KADK) where she is teaching and doing research about cross-disciplinary, experimental (co)design and co-production processes and increasingly about problematization of ideas of implementation related to public sector, socio-material and urban development. Per-Anders Hillgren and Anna Seravalli are at Malmö University, The School of Arts and Communication (K3). Per-Anders is currently mainly coordinating the research platform Collaborative Future Making (https://mau.se/en/research/research-platforms/collaborative-future-making/). Anna is researching on the topics of sustainable city development, Urban Living Labs, and knowledge co-production with a special interest on questions of participation, democracy in city making and organizational learning within municipal organizations.
