Three main objectives: Demonstrate the value for SMEs of a European network of local open innovation platforms Set up thematic networks of Living Labs across Europe Develop a common approach for cross-border Living Lab experiments It is an interactive, bottom-up process. > developing by doing so. Main results is on lessons learned and convert these in the appropriate set of tools and methods.

Valid atio n e x am p le : Eco syste m s analysis (H o m e care )Method The ecosystem analysis identifies the different actors that are required to set up and deploy a cross-border platform. This is done by first listing the various roles and activities required to conduct the pilotPhase Connect, Plan and EngageOrigin Within the first two phases we started with a more traditional approach of defining and creatin an ecosystemEvolution Initially we started by defining an ecosystem based on the health context. But listing the various actors and trying to create a common ecosystem (in place in all LLs) was not feasible. Therefore we switched to an approach in which we focused on the roles and responsibilitiesRecommendations A cross-border pilot require a local ecosystem. The local liviong lab is best placed to identify a local partner. In order to do so the roles and responsibilitie need to be very clear. This process cannot be done by one actor, it has to be a joint collaborative processValidation In each of the pilots an ecosystem analysis was done to find and setup the required ecosystem to facilitate the cross-border pilot
