The national workshop aims to: 

  1. exchange knowledge about the growing phenomenon of New Working Spaces (NWS) (such as coworking, makerspaces, fablabs, hackerspaces, business laboratories, other collaborative and creative workspaces, libraries offering coworking and makerspaces and office sharing services), 
  2. understand differences and similarities between city and peripheries, as well as the implications for urban and regional development and policy in Portugal, and
  3. to discuss and lay the foundations for a Portuguese Coworking Assembly for its future. 

The workshop also aims to promote collaboration between national academics and other Portuguese actors, who are interested in this topic. It also aims to get to know each other better and establish a platform for collaboration and future projects.  Both academic participants and stakeholders at the national, regional, and local level play a crucial role as experts and informants on the development of NWS in metropolitan areas, medium-sized small towns, and rural areas in Portugal.
