Lakin was one of the developers of the the Uppsala Collaboratory, a meeting space that works with three themes 1) Opening new channels and collaborations between academia and civil society 2) crossovers of science, art and culture in the shadow of global challenges and transitions, and 3) supporting new pathways for social innovation towards sustainable futures.
