Description: 

Living Lab

Campus grounds aren’t only a backdrop at the University of Minnesota. Our Living Laboratories have transformed otherwise un-programmed areas into spaces for innovation, testing, demonstration, and learning. Sound like something you would like to create? The Twin Cities Sustainability Committee invites proposals twice a year from the University community to create living laboratories. Selected proposals will be provided space on campus and grounds and assistance in facilitating project implementation.
