Mar 11, 2020

The Cité-ID Liv­ing Lab and the Mai­son de l’innovation sociale (MIS) have devel­oped a research project to meet these objec­tives, in part­ner­ship with the City of Mon­tréal, which aims to assess the rel­e­vance of the con­cept of social cap­i­tal as a vec­tor of urban resilience in dif­fer­ent contexts.

This project has three main objec­tives:

1. to devel­op an appro­pri­ate tool for mea­sur­ing social cap­i­tal;

2. to under­stand the mech­a­nisms for cre­at­ing social cap­i­tal; and 3. to devel­op a tool for mea­sur­ing social cap­i­tal;

3. to observe the mech­a­nisms for insti­tu­tion­al­iz­ing the con­cept of social cap­i­tal.

The project was divid­ed into three com­po­nents, based on research sub-projects:

Com­po­nent 1: Resilience and social cap­i­tal : prepa­ra­tion for cat­a­stroph­ic events,” in part­ner­ship with Tran­si­tion NDG;
