To define this concept and working framework, partners will conduct a benchmark analysis and focus groups with end-users and experts.
The benchmark analysis will mainly consist of desk research to identify and analyse similar structures (e.g. living labs, makers spaces, fablabs, etc.) in order to learn from these experiences.
The focus groups will allow getting insights from end-users and experts that are critical to create a new concept of MiniOpenLabs that responds to specific needs in SD and STEM education in each of the countries/local areas. There will be 3 focus groups, one in each country, with a total of 24 participants.
