About policy lab
The policy lab is designed for policymakers and researchers whose work is to engage citizens, NGOs,
institutions and companies in policy. Inspired by the Design Thinking methodology, this bottom-up
approach helps to co-design policy recommendations with stakeholders in order to change their behaviours
and have an impact in everyday life. Built as 10 steps that be taken globally or separately,
this guideline is meant to be applicable to any country, any sector, with different focal points
to accommodate for local circumstances.

Other step Overview
- The approach in this toolkit is to combine a context analysis of latest technical, political and environmental trends with socio-economic issues faced by individuals. Both qualitative and quantitative evidence should be collected.
In the ENTRUST project, a context analysis was carried out for each of the six countries studied (France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom). An example below presents the initial analytical framework used to assess these dimensions.
