The Socialdesign Platform offers actors guidance  in setting up and carrying out research-action residency with designers and architects. The platform’s methodology focuses on dialogue and establishing project phases and milestones that are realistic for all parties. An audit committee, separate from the project designers, takes part in project assessments and communication, in coordination with the project owners and designers. The committee ensures that the residency runs smoothly, providing the tools and methods required to evaluate needs and ongoing projects, from the field assessment up to project completion.
