My international profile combines a background in psychology, interaction and service design, and user-research providing a fertile ground for bridging cultures, technology, and design through various projects. I believe in playful creative approaches, in the power of storytelling and prototyping, developing businesses and tools through blueprints focusing on circular business approaches.

Through the Cities-4-People project, Isabel Froes has been involved in co-writing with 3 other neighbourhood projects the publication, Big Messages - lessons for co-creative mobility initiatives in neighbourhoods, issued in 2021. The publication highlights lessons learned and both challenges and opportunities in co-creating mobility solutions in urban environments. Learn more and read the publication here.
Also though the Cities-4People project, Isabel Froes has been involved in the publication, CIVITAS Research Projects, Lessons Learned 2016-2020, issued in May 2021. The publication showcases the key lessons learned from six CIVITAS Research and Innovation Action (RIA) projects funded since 2016: Cities-4-People, METAMORPHOSIS, Mobility Urban Values, PROSPERITY, SUITS, and SUMPs-Up. These projects formed two broad clusters – neighbourhood mobility planning projects and projects working on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Learn more and read the publication here.
