Dr Claudia Murray, Research Fellow in Real Estate & Planning, was in Rio de Janeiro last month working on the project Vila Cruzeiro Live Lab project, which is developing an urban laboratory for innovation. Vila Cruzeiro is an informal development in Rio de Janeiro and, in conjunction with HBS Entrepreneurial Centre, we are working with the local community to improve the urban environment, living conditions and job opportunities. The overall aim is to create an urban laboratory for innovation; testing entrepreneurial skills at the bottom of the societal pyramid, and evaluating the impact of interventions to feed back into longer term collaborations and policy recommendations.
