Process<br />The applied common validation and consolidation of interview outcomes have been kept very simple by intention and comprises the following information:<br />Main category and sub-category according to the categorization of the APOLLON methodology framework<br />The concept category distinguishing between methodologies, organizational/governance structures and tools<br />The origin of the finding naming the project’s or initiative’s name and its concept<br />A verbal description summarizing the main facts about the finding<br />A SWOT analysis listing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the findings<br />Available references for further details<br />An indication of the relevance of the findings for the APOLLON methodology framework<br />
Findings<br />The exchange of best practices and lessons learned is seen as the most important goal of the network.<br />When the network has produced concrete output, it is still more a gathering of what is available or possible within (each of) the Living labs.<br />the sustainability of the networks is unsure<br />There is a lack of clear defined rules and procedures within the network that determine how partners should collaborate with each other<br />it is required to start developing new methods, tools, protocols, technical requirements and to establish a better exchange and re-usability of processes and procedures creating higher impact on the product / service innovator, the user and the whole local/regional eco-system.<br />leverage their expertise and combine customers and suppliers into a seamlessly integrated value network by embedding their local ecosystems into a broader cross-border ecosystem of Living Lab networks.<br />
