Project Details


The BrusseauBis project aims to experiment (set-up and testing of) a support tool for Integrated Management of Rain Water via co-creation. This tool is a continuation of the work and findings of the participative research action Brusseau (CoCreate) which aimed to demonstrate that the urban landscape can be resilient to flooding risks. The Brusseau research has shown that scientist and citizens can offer a qualitative joint expertise, often very different from traditional expertise, enabling to search in a creative way collectively for alternative solutions for Integrated Management of Rain Water at local scale. The BrusseauBis project wants to experiment actively by opening up this way of working to institutional partners (communes and regional water actors), aiming at an efficient integration of an active involvement of citizens and “users” in the process of integrated Management. To do so serval Living Labs (LL) have been defined around the different phases of co-creation: from the emergence until the co-management of projects, via co-diagnosis, co-planning, co-design and co-construction and this at different spatial levels (from parcel to water basin level). Every LL is supposed to deliver answers to questions around coordination, juridical and economical aspects, technological innovation, or questing living in the local communities. The terrains of experimentation are located in the Molenbeek valley (communes St-Agatha-Berchem, Ganshoren, Jette en Laken/Brussel-Stad) and the slopes of forest-nord.
