What is a Living Lab?
Pictre by Unity.in FlickrIt is an ecosystem centered in users for open innovation
Picture by Eccentric Jeff in Flickr Including communities / users, private sector, public sector,and local authorities.
Picture by anikaviro in FlickrCuadruple Helix: authorities, companies, universities and users.
In generalit operates regionally (neighborhood, city, region) Picture by forteller.ipernity.com
Picture by Janem in Flickr It is only by working together with users that it is possible to getinnovative products and services. End -users bring tacit knowledge
Picture by kowitz in Flickr ImpementingUser Centered Design methods(scenarios, personas, workshops, collages, games, drama, etc).
Picture by Pajaroenmano Interaction designers are familiar with the methods, withexperimentation and with iterations during the design process
Picture by Pajaroenmano in FlickrUCD and interaction design have been long interweaved research fields.

Why Living Labs?
design that serves a community and individual members of the community
He lsi nk iL ivi ng La bAs a way to support grass-roots movements
Setting a long term collaboration with them

Building blocks for scenarios & prototypes

Users as informants and developers that can also develop R & Dprojects. The degree of commitment and participation is defined by the user itself. .
Picturire by CEA in Flickr Living Labs provide an arena for supporting different ways of codesignwith clients, consumers, and citizens.
They could fill a gap if there is not enough local, regional, ornational capacity for making citizens participate in the development of public and private services and products.Picture by anikaviro
Picture by dalberaThey can be seen as intermediate organizations to support the involvement of users in R&D projects. They challenge the obstacles of previous models based on the development of technology.
(Ståhlbröst 2008, p.35)LL have also been seen as research concepts.

What do Living Labs support?
La ur ea Liv ing La b Pictures from Caring TV project- Laurea University of Applied SciencesProvide methods and environment for testing
Support and plan e-services together with end-users
Map users needs Picture by Mike Eng
Picture by geekphysical Test prototypesEvaluate concepts and scenarios, Develop products & services
Generate links for making quick & dirty testing. Organize discussion on-line with the users groups. Prototype. Picture by Pedro Arellano.
Picture by peruisay In most of these cases this happens in real spaces, NO in virtual spacesThey are NOT laboratory tests but evaluating in real situations.
LL empower non-designers to applied UCD methods and disseminate the practice to listen to people.
Picture by jakuzahelp to built a common design vocabulary within people from others disciplines. (designers, developers, researchers, etc)
Why Living Labs in Finland?
Long tradition in User Centered Design -from a bean to a feijoada Picture in Flickr by Gov/BA
Strong participation fromUniversities of Applied Sciences -from an egg to a tortilla Picture in Flickr by jlastras
User driven innovation policy -from rice to ... Picture in Flickr by Mr. Kris
Public Funding-from corn to popcorn Picture in Flickr by Ayelie
TEKES Finnish Funding Aency for technology and innovation SITRA Finnish Innovation Fund FINPRO-Organization that helps Finnish companies to internationalize Cities as services providers and funding bodies Universities Research centers
Why Living Labs in Argentina?
Urban lab Metropolitan Center of Design + Research group + starts ups(COFECYT-DETEM: Consejo Federal de Ciencia y Tecnología- Projectos de desarrollo tecnológico municipal)
Can it be something else?
Yes!Picture by sean dreilinger
l ita ap C n ig es D d or W ki n si elH Find partners after being in dialogue with citizens (OURCity, designing inclusion- Meri Rastila)
Picture from SEMO, Somali men groupEstablish partnership with active communities (let people find you and look for the proactive communities)
Be aware of our contributionboth as professionals and as persons
Adapt our vocabulary to open the dialogue
Picture by cloneofsnakeInvest our time and effort in interaction and iterations with people for building partnership
Motivate users to participate in development projects (increase the design capabilities of the stakeholders themselves)
Enlarge collaboration networks(World design capital + Alternative Design Capital)
Adapt flexible solutions (to the dreams of people)
Give sustainability to projects thatget their energy out of the newness (be part of the solidarity economy)
Pictures in Flickr by StefanKazSupport community and personal practices (instead of talking about services or products)

Innovation will only come as a dialogue within people, objects and emotions.
that needs to be stimulated(Provide open ended components, platforms, toolkits)
