Apollon Overview - current status

  1. 1. APOLLON Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks Prof. Dr Pieter Ballon General Manager IBBT iLab.o APOLLON Project Manager
  2. 2. APOLLON CIP PSP Pilot B Project kick-off: ENoLL Office, Brussels, 17-19 November 2009 Duration of the project: 30 months
  3. 3. IBBT (Interdisciplinary institute for BroadBand Technology) 600+ researchers in 16 groups, annual project budget of over 25 Mio 3 Lab facilities: Living lab, testbed and usability lab Currently involved in 20+ EU Future Internet running projects / project negotiations Hosting the ENoLL Office Secretariat services for all members Specific services for paying members Supporting the ENoLL council
  4. 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  innova8on  pla9orms      Set  up  thema8c  networks  of  Living  Labs  across  Europe      Develop  a  common  approach  for  cross-­‐border  Living  Lab  experiments  
  5. 5. APOLLON Cross-Border Methodology Framework
  6. 6. Current activity: Baseline research •  Online questionnaire aimed at –  Partner  SMEs   –  Partner  Living  Labs   •  50 questions about the different aspects of LL networking •  Questions for possible categorization of LL's and their –  Motivation and Methods of Collaboration –  Tools and Techniques used in Cross-Border Collaboration, –  Needs and wants for Methodological instruments All  aimed  at  understanding  the  present  state,  and  the  needs  for  development  
  7. 7. Experiment 1: Homecare & Independent Living    Remote  gateway  and   sensor  based  systems  for   homecare  and  independent   living      Transfer  local  market   solu8ons  to  another   na8onal  market      Help  involved  SMEs   explore  new  markets;        Improve  the  technologies   and  devices  used  in  the   homecare  context  through   the  valida8on  in  different   contexts  
  8. 8. Current activity: Requirement identification and design of experiment •  Requirement checklist on different levels: •  Organiza8onal,  technical,  research,  roles  &  responsibili8es,  legal  /   regulatory     •  Role of the ‘host’ living lab –  Informa8on  provider   •  Insight  in  contextual  factors   •  Knowledge  of  the  local  eco-­‐system   –  Broker   •  Distribu8on  hub  and  Connec8on  to  local  partners   •  Set-­‐up  partnerships   •  Operational –  Need  to  work  in  small,  dedicated  teams   –  All  necessary  stakeholders  involved  from  the  start  
  9. 9. Experiment 2: Energy Efficiency    Assess  the  poten8al  of  Home  Control  pla9orm      BeRer  understanding  of  user  behaviour  and   processes  to  s8mulate  behavioural  change  in   terms  of  Energy  consump8on;        Contribute  to  decreasing  the  Carbon  Foot  Print
  10. 10. Current activity: Requirement identification and establishment of SME partnerships ISA  interna8onaliza8on   strategy  to  establish   business   partnerships  in   Luleå  and  Vitória   (equipment   distribu8on),   integrated  solu8ons   in  Helsinki  and   Amsterdam   (incorpora8ng   added  value  with   other  equipments   and  services)  and   adding  value  by   technology  transfer   from  Amsterdam.  
  11. 11. 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
  12. 12. Current activity: use case refinement and SME engagement
  13. 13. Experiment 4: eParticipation - Social Media First Pilot: The Digital Fort Project, Issy Les Moulineaux A pilot on the aggregation of Media Technologies using 3D, cross-media, community reporting and context aware mobile applications to include citizens in the urban innovation process. Test how eMedia technologies can be aggregated to enable citizens to take part in urban planning of the City of the Future & to explore its History
  14. 14. Current activity: Requirement analysis and Refining scenario for the experiment SMEs Cross-Media Community Report Context Aware Interactive 3D technologies Documentary SME: People Voice mobile app Urban Plan SME: 3d2+ Media SME: Air Graffiti SME: Navidis Technology’s Facilitate Foster participation Enhance Awareness role Citizen’s involvement and innovation Users’ role Providing Documents, learn Witness, Journalism Imagine the future City Timeline Past Present Future

  17. 17. 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  Cri8cal  Mass,                  Contribu8ng  to  Domain  Innova8on   •  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
