In the next four years the IABR will once again realize a number of Ateliers in collaboration with local and regional governments at home and abroad. In this new series of Ateliers the IABR will commit even stronger to the in-depth development of the joint research process and the practical implementation of its results than before. The research by design is explicitly aimed at realization. This involves putting the results of the Ateliers into practice locally and regionally and having them make a contribution to urban development as a whole.

The first IABR Atelier ‘new style’ has already been launched. In collaboration with the City of Rotterdam (Urban Planning Department and the Resilient Rotterdam program) and the Port of Rotterdam Authority, the Atelier Rotterdam (2017-2020) intends to seize the opportunity created by the inevitable energy transition to spur on inclusive urban development.

The IABR initiates and produces the Ateliers as a lead partner for the Regional and Local Design Dialogue Program, within the framework of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment’s Action Agenda for Spatial Design 2017–2020.
