ILS Innovative Learning Spaces is a scientific school organized by DADU (Department of Architecture, Design and Planning, University of Sassari within the SPIN-APP project); Innovative Spaces for Learning (Regional Law n.7, "Promotion of scientific research and technological innovation in Sardinia"), in collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Frascati), with the contribution of Sardegna Ricerche under the project Scientific School 2015.

The school focuses on the design of innovative learning spaces. The aim is to provide a  reference point for the project of both new buildings and the renovation of existing ones. Designing a school means to responsibly rethink the role of space in relation to the dynamics of the learning process and to the renewal of the current didactic organization . The prerequisite is to design a flexible, modular and multifunctional space which can be suitable to the individual growth of the student’s skills. This space also needs to combine principles and materials for good sustainable practices and to include innovative technology as a tool to improve the quality of physical space
