  • 1. APOLLON Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks Prof. Dr Pieter Ballon General Manager IBBT iLab.o APOLLON Project Manager
  • 2. Living Labs as local platforms •  Living Labs have now been established at a local scale –  as  environments  for  real-­‐life  tes/ng  and  experimenta/on  of  new   services,  products  and  systems  with  communi/es  of  real  users     –  allowing  early  feedback  and  co-­‐design  by  end-­‐users   –  following  a  collabora/ve,  itera/ve  and  stochas/c  process   –  focused  on  sustainable,  social  innova/on:  not  just  purchase  decision,   but  behavioural  pa>erns  and  changes  are  the  central  concern   –  offering  an  open  and  neutral  pla@orm  where  all  stakeholders   (technology  suppliers,  service  providers,  business  customers,   ins/tu/ons,  policy  makers  and  regulators,  end-­‐users)  can  interact  and   co-­‐innovate     2
  • 3. Taking the next step •  Current Living Labs –  Living  Labs  in  Europe  form  a  new,  vibrant  and  growing  community   –  Locally  implanted  ini/a/ves   –  Great  variety  in  applica/on  domains,  approaches  etc.   •  Current federation on European scale –  European  Network  of  Living  Labs  is  a  federa/on  of  Living  Labs  conforming  to  a   number  of  general  benchmark  criteria     –  European  projects  addressing  exchange  of  best  prac/ces  and  methodologies   for  individual  labs   •  APOLLON addresses the next frontier in Living Lab Research –  Leverage  local  implanta/on,  overcome  local  limita/ons   –  Do  joint  tes/ng  in  cross-­‐border  living  lab  projects   –  Offer  opportuni/es  for  innovators  (i.e.  SMEs)  to  innovate  and  scale  up   interna/onally  much  faster  
  • 4. APOLLON: Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks Can SMEs use Living Lab networks to test and What is needed for cross- enter new markets? border Living Lab Networks? Common Homecare & ILS Energy Efficiency methodology Common ecosystem approach Common research benchmark eManufacturing Social Media Common platform guidelines Common integration framework The  APOLLON  objec.ves:    Demonstrate  the  value  for  SMEs  of  a  European  network  of  local  open  innova/on  pla@orms      Set  up  thema/c  networks  of  Living  Labs  across  Europe      Develop  a  common  approach  for  cross-­‐border  Living  Lab  experiments  
  • 5. APOLLON Cross-Border Methodology Framework
  • 6. Experiment 1: Homecare & Independent Living
  • 7. Experiment 2: Energy Efficiency
  • 8. Experiment 3: eManufacturing •  An ‘App Store’ around a manufacturing platform: link up machines, sensors, etc. •  SMEs can add or mash up these services to new, innovative apps •  Test them in live ‘Living Lab’ factories
  • 9. Experiment 4: eParticipation - Social Media
  • 10. Consortium Partners
  • 11. Consortium Partner Distribution
  • 12. Towards Sustainable Impacts In order to create a sustainable impact two actions will be undertaken: the development of “Cross Border Piloting Service” and the setting-up of Thematic Domain Networks •  Establishment of 4 cross-border Living Labs Domain Networks: -­‐   LL  Domain  Network  for  Health   -­‐   LL  Domain  Network  for  Energy   -­‐   LL  Domain  Network  for  Manufacturing   -­‐   LL  Domain  Network  for  Media   Main  impact:  Building  Commons,  Reaching  Cri/cal  Mass,                  Contribu/ng  to  Domain  Innova/on   •  Development of “Cross Border Piloting Service”: -­‐   deliver  a  service  offering  the  APOLLON  set  of  methodologies  and  the   consultancy  on  how  to  implement  them   -­‐   released  through  the  European  Network  of  Living  Labs   Main  impact:  possibility  to  develop  new  pilots  at  local  and  European  scale                    &  to  replicate  local  pilot  in  different  markets  around  Europe
