Multidisciplinary and innovative
We are Shifting Lab
Shifting Lab is a union of four young professionals. A multidisciplinary group where the heterogeneity of experiences and of project approaches add up towards a common vision: shifting from a linear to a systemic view.
Shifting Lab addresses complex and current issues related to circular economy, responsible consumption, social inclusion and green innovation. The individual and its impact on the environment are the center of the group’s research and work.
