EU Policy on Smart Specialization and Regional Living Labs• Smart Specialization can be achieved through Regional Living Labs, sharing a similar vision, values, strategies, methodologies and implementation.• The implementation of Smart Specialization of Regions can thus become a bottom-up process, building on the Regional Living Labs and taking advantage of: – User engagement at the local level; – Openness, transparency and creativity culture of Living Labs; – Existing networks and cross-border collaboration; – Existing trust among the different regional, national and international stakeholders.Brussels, May 22nd 2012 User-driven Open Innovation Ecosystems go really local ... across borders!
Open Living Labs PPPP (1/2) • We want to strengthen the open Research Development and Innovation ecosystem of the growing community of European Living Labs, institutionally, financially and in terms of its RDI infrastructure, including new avenues of research and experimentation in social and other sciences. • This can be supported through the constitution of a Public Private People Partnership - Open Living Labs PPPP ‐ having the potential to change dramatically the innovation landscape in Europe in Horizon 2020. • A white paper has been co-created and validated by a large community of Living Labs extended to a wider community of Innovation related organisation. • Paper being re-drafted with the inclusion of success cases and impact assessment.Brussels, May 22nd 2012 User-driven Open Innovation Ecosystems go really local ... across borders!
Open Living Labs PPPP (2/2)• Strategic Innovation Ecosystems, large‐scale pilot initiatives aiming to stimulate the growth and development of Living Lab innovation ecosystems across a broad spectrum of sectors and at different levels of governance.• Enabling Actions, four strands of activity (plus one support action) covering a range of areas that support and reinforce the strategic innovation ecosystems and defined as: – Knowledge Creation – Talent Development, Capacity Building, and Job Creation – New Policy Instruments – Organizing the national, regional and local structures (co-funding mechanism enabling different instruments) – International Cooperation Coordination, Dissemination and EngagementBrussels, May 22nd 2012 User-driven Open Innovation Ecosystems go really local ... across borders!
Conclusions • The big global challenges of our time demand mass participation of users/consumers/citizens. Finding solutions requires the pooling of diverse types of knowledge and resources, and harnessing the motivation of millions of individuals and their communities. • Technologies are not sufficient to solve the challenges in a sustainable way, user behaviour transformation is required and this can be enabled by the Living Lab methodologies. • Future Internet technologies, Living Labs and Social Innovation enable the co-creation of Smart Regions and Smart Cities where citizens sense of belonging and identity, wellbeing and togetherness, form a better and happier society.Brussels, May 22nd 2012 User-driven Open Innovation Ecosystems go really local ... across borders!
