  1. 1. The APOLLON Pilot: Overview Koen De Vos Pilot Operations Manager, IBBT iLab.o Coordination WP Leader, APOLLON Pilot
  2. 2. The reason why we’re here WHY APOLLON?
  3. 3. Early Living Labs 3
  4. 4. Going City-Wide 4
  5. 5. Expanding in an EU network 5
  6. 6. Becoming a known ‘brand’ •  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     6
  7. 7. 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   –  Offering  opportuni/es  for  innovators  (i.e.  SMEs)  to  innovate  and  scale  up   interna/onally  much  faster  
  8. 8. Our objectives •  APOLLON will demonstrate the positive impacts of cross-border domain- specific Living Lab networks by setting up an advanced pilot composed of 4 thematically focused experiments •  Focus on enabling SMEs to take part in cross-border Living Lab activities beyond their home markets, supported by large industrial companies, academic centres and other stakeholders •  Main objectives (1) piloting and evaluating added value of LL networks esp. for SMEs (2) harmonised methodologies and tools for cross-border Living Lab projects (3) Sustainable cross-border domain-specific LL networks
  9. 9. Our expected results 1.  A set of validated methodologies to set up and conduct cross- border Living Lab networks 2.  A recommended toolset for facilitating cross-border Living Lab activities 3.  The set-up of European thematic Living Lab clusters 4.  A platform and practical guidelines for involving SMEs 5.  An impact assessment of the specific added value in terms of results as well as operational efficiencies of the cross-border approach 6.  Recommendations and action plans for viable, sustainable and scalable roll-outs to further domains and sectors
  10. 10. What we’re actually doing APOLLON, THE PILOT
  11. 11. APOLLON approach (1/5)
  12. 12. APOLLON approach (2/5)
  13. 13. APOLLON approach (3/5) Transferring  local  ILS/homecare  applica/ons  into   Using  a  common  research  benchmark  on   another  country   Energy  Efficiency  in  4  Living  Labs   Pilo/ng  a  common  pla@orm  for  eManufacturing  in   Exchanging  and  integra/ng  local  ci/zen   3  Living  Labs   media  services  between  3  Living  Labs  
  14. 14. APOLLON approach (4/5)
  15. 15. APOLLON approach (5/5)
  16. 16. Homecare & Independent Living - experiment
  17. 17. Homecare & Independent living –  Ability  to  do  cross-­‐border  experiments  faster,  easier  and  more   efficiently   –  involved  SMEs  explore  new  markets;     –  improve  the  technologies  and  devices  used  in  the  homecare  context   through  the  valida/on  in  different  contexts  
  18. 18. Energy Efficiency - experiment
  19. 19. Energy Efficiency –  be>er  understanding  of  user  behaviour  and  processes  to   s/mulate  behavioural  change  in  terms  of  Energy   consump/on;     –  contribute  to  decreasing  the  Carbon  Foot  Print;     –  assess  the  poten/al  of  the  Nokia  Home  Control  centre  
  20. 20. eManufacturing - experiment •  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
  21. 21. eManufacturing –  improve  innova/on  lifecycle  for  SMEs  in  the  automo/ve   industry;     –  use  pla@orm  for  seamless  exchange  of  informa/on   between  suppliers,  subcontractors  and  consumers  in  the   experiment;     –  increase  in  the  collabora/on  between  those  partners  as   well  as  a  more  efficient  and  cost-­‐reduc/ve  workflow  
  22. 22. eParticipation - eMedia
  23. 23. eParticipation –  pilot  integrated  services  for  ci/zen  par/cipa/on  in  city  life   will  be  piloted;     –  increase  the  dialogue  between  ci/zens  themselves  as  well   as  ci/zens  and  government  or  public  organisa/ons  and   thus  the  empowerment  of  the  user;     –  be>er  understanding  of  new  technologies  like  3D,  social   media  and  RFID  as  such  and  their  value  for  ePar/cipa/on   services.  
  24. 24. What we want to achieve APOLLON IMPACT
  25. 25. Impact for Living Labs (1/2) •  For existing Living Labs: –  the  possibility  to  leverage  local  exper/se  across  European   borders;     –  more  effec/ve  and  more  efficient  cross-­‐border  projects;     –  be>er  results  in  terms  of  outcomes  and  comparability  of   the  Living  Lab  research  as  well  as  in  terms  of  valorisa/on   opportuni/es   –  a  be>er  value  proposi/on  for  their  local  stakeholders   through  an  enlarged  footprint  and  an  improved  and   harmonised  methodology  
  26. 26. Impact for Living Labs (2/2) •  For new Living Labs: –  the  availability  of  a  network  of  experienced  Living  Lab   partners  with  clear  exper/se  in  their  specific  domain   throughout  Europe   –  a  pla@orm  where  best  prac/ces  are  shared  and  new   project  opportuni/es  are  opened  up   –  a  roadmap  towards  cross-­‐border  excellence  
  27. 27. Impact for SMEs –  Access  to  new  markets  beyond  the  home  market   –  Access  to  new  ecosystem  partners  and  business  opportuni/es   –  Pan-­‐European  user  tes/ng  will  ensure  more  user-­‐oriented  services  and   products  and  higher  user  acceptance  at  European  level   –  Support  of  compe//veness  because  of  enlarged  scale  and  faster   deployment  of  novel  services  and  processes   –  Easy  access  to  all  local  relevant  stakeholders  via  a  Single  Point  Of   Access   –  Access  to  tools,  applica/ons,  services  and  infrastructure  of  the   different  Living  Labs  as  well  as  the  other  partners  related  to  the  Living   Lab   –  Lower  thresholds  to  engage  in  cross-­‐border  Research,  Development   and  Innova/on  (RDI).  
  28. 28. Impact for Other stakeholders •  Large enterprises: –  be>er  methodological  support  for  Pan-­‐European  research  projects.     –  new  users  for  solu/ons  and  pla@orms   –  expansion  of  their  tradi/onal  ecosystems  through  new  strategic   partnerships  with  SMEs.   •  Government bodies: –  possibility  to  assess  and  benchmark  current  policies  and  funding   schemes  related  to  Living  Labs.     –  poten/al  to  complement  local  RDI  ac/vi/es  with  cross-­‐border   ac/vi/es
