Resource Map Haspengouw

Posted by Ben on Wednesday February 27th 2013 at 17:11


The 28th of March Social Spaces organises the workshop ‘Resource Map Haspengouw’ in collaboration with Haspenwood at the Conflict & Design triennale in Genk. During this workshop, we will map the local resources of Haspengouw, Limburg (BE) (a region known for its fruit trees) and explore their potential. More specifically we will explore how a fruit tree as a whole including its fruits, waste materials, bioactive compounds and wood can be ‘valorised’. Next to this material resource we also see the local knowledge and the environment of Haspengouw as potential resources for the development of a sustainable production system.

Kick-off Event CUO I Social Spaces (2) on February the 4th

Posted by Selina on Friday February 1st 2013 at 12:06

As part of the integration of the KU Leuven and its university colleges, Social Spaces (MAD-Faculty) and the Centre for User Experience Research (CUO, iMinds) have merged into a joint research group called Social Spaces|CUO. Together we pursue research projects in which we combine our complementary skills for designing socially relevant interactive applications and artefacts.

In order to celebrate this new joint research group, we invite you to a kick-off event. A combination of an interesting speaker (Froukje Sleeswijk-Visser) and a practical workshop (MAP-it) will give you a glimpse of the topics and methods our joint group is working on.

Registration is free but required via

We hope to see you on Monday!
