Liveable Cities Lab

The Liveable Cities Lab is Ramboll's innovation and research laboratory, directed by Herbert Dreiseitl, dedicated to support cities in envisioning their future development. Our work addresses global challenges such as demographic changes, urbanization and climate change through a multi- and transdisciplinary approach.

We explore the potentials and conditions that ensure Liveability, including policymaking and good governance: How to bring best value to the society, create a culture of inspiration, and implement better-integrated urban infrastructures and design tools for managing global challenges and environment-related risks?

As an international think-tank we provide solutions to contemporary urban, environmental and social challenges through our unique three-level approach to Liveability: the physical level, where we can provide technical excellence; the social level where we can increase social knowledge, provide space for interaction, and influence good governance; and the cultural level, where we can provide inspiration and contribute to cultural competence.
