What is (the value of) a Living Lab?• Living Lab is a real-life test and experimentation environment where users and producers co-create innovations• Public-Private-People Partnership (PPPP), quattro helix by main 4 main stakeholders (companies, researchers, public organisations and users) come together for creation, prototyping, validating and testing new technologies, services, products etc in real-life contexts• Many different LL environments such as research, corporate, organisational, intermediary, time-limited…• Empower citizens (end-users) as active co-creators (from passive consumers to active prosumers) to of value, ideas & innovations that benefit the whole society
Where does it come from and how did it evolve into ENoLL?• Originated for MIT (US), concept further developed in Europe• Supported by EC as bridging the gap between R&D and market entrance (faster take up of R&D results) and enable SMEs obstacles on local and regional markets in the fragmented European market place• Linked with EC policies and initiatives EU2020, Digital Agenda, especially through initiatives such as EIPs on Smart Cities, Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA), Future Internet, Design …• Several Living Lab initiatives supported by the EC (FP7, CIP ICT PSP programme,Interreg etc) as well as national programmes• Living Labs in the Horizon2020 ?
ENoLL in short (1/2) • ENoLL launched in 2006 under the Finnish EU Presidency, grown into a non-profit international association representing a diverse community of over 300 ENoLL ‘certified’ Living LabsAll Living Labs:www.openlivinglabs.eu/livinglabs 20/09//2012
ENoLL in short (2/2)• ENoLL association is lead by ENoLL effective and associated members (General Assembly) with elected Council• ENoLL office in Brussels facilitating knowledge exchange, joint action and project partnerships between its members: • Network events to exchange information and best practice • Disseminates information on EU funding and project opportunities, supports to build project consortia and develop joint projects • Influences EU policies and engages in debate with EU institutions (consultations, workshops etc)• ENoLL is partner in key EU-funded projects of strategic importance and benefit to the network• Cooperation agreements with World Bank, EBN, FAO, UNITED, LLiSA…
What is coming?• From User centric open innovation as a methodology to a (eco)system thinking…• Cities and regions as open Living Labs i.e Barcelona as a Lab (European contribution to the global innovation system) e.g smart cities, RISs, smart specialisation etc• National and regional and thematic networks of Living Labs growing (Finland, UK, France etc)• Collaboration with World Bank, and further on with telecenters network, technology parks (IASP) and EIT ICT Labs• 7th Wave of Living Labs – Open until May 5th, 2013
ENoLL 7th Wave for Membership Applications• Opened in February 2013• Pre-registration to firstname.lastname@example.org, you will receive application document• Evaluation will be done by selected independent ENoLL & LL experts on following criteria: • Membership motivation • Description and characteristics • Organisation • Openness • Resources • Users and reality • Value • Direction and sustainability• Publication of results at the ENoLL Summer School in Manchester August 27 – 30 th, 2013
