  1. 1. Open Innovation by Living Labs Across Borders: the APOLLON project Prof. Dr Pieter Ballon General Manager IBBT iLab.o APOLLON Project Manager
  2. 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. 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. 4. APOLLON: Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in NetworksHow  can  SMEs  use  Living  Lab  networks  to  test  and  enter   What  is  needed  for  cross-­‐border    new  markets?   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

  7. 7. APOLLON Methodology Basic Scenario•  Methodology as a harmonization framework for cross-border Living Labnetworks•  Includes strategies & concepts for cooperation, tools & methods for userinvolvement, best practices & lessons learned from earlier projects, as well asframework and templates for impact assessment•  Methodology builds on the following basic scenario:1. SME Contactsa local Living Lab 8. Lessons (LL1) or ENoLL LearnedDomain Network added to LLKC 2. Match is 7. PC and found from LL2 SME assess knowledge benefits and center (LLKC) plan next step 3. Project coordinator (PC) is assigned, 6. LL2 assesses project model 4. LL2 collects 5. PC leads market agreed (LL2 or local the project potential for LL1 + LL2) stakeholders, PC using LLKC local business takes over tools case
  8. 8. APOLLON Methodological Structure• Living Lab partner search function • Check-lists and templates for• Platform for promoting project planning projects • Guidelines IPR handling• Check-lists and templates for • Collaboration tools project scoping • Success cases, best practices• Model contracts Set Boundarie Connect s and engage Support Manage and and track govern • Monitoring and assessment • Supporting services and tools: guidelines & templates • Methods and tools for co- • Success criteria and KPI innovation indication • Project management support • Material for market entry and • Best practices from thematics commercialization

  11. 11. Experiment 1: Homecare & Independent Living    Remote  gateway  and   sensor  based  systems  for   homecare  and  independent   living      Transfer  local  market   solu/ons  to  another   na/onal  market      Help  involved  SMEs   explore  new  markets;       Improve  the  technologies   and  devices  used  in  the  homecare  context  through   the  valida/on  in  different   contexts  
  12. 12. Homecare & well-being ecosystemDraft common eco-system for homecare & well-being > identifying necessary actors > description of the roles and responsibilities First business opportunities explored Home care organization Insurance Government Living Care receiver Lab Developer Informal care Service giver provider Operator
  13. 13. Experiment 2: Energy Efficiency   Assess  the  poten/al  of  Home  Control  pla@orm     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
  14. 14. Living Lab Cross-border Activity Example ISA internationalization strategy is to establish business partnerships in Luleå and Vitória (equipment distribution), integrated solutions in Helsinki and Amsterdam (incorporating added value with other equipments and services) and adding value by technology transfer from Amsterdam.
  15. 15. 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•  Specific agreements between SMEs and SAP concluded
  16. 16. eManufacturing use cases Energy Monitoring Asset maintenance and Logistics traceability and optimization optimization• Connecting energy monitors • Device management • Localization of tools and • Asset hierarchy materials on the shopfloor• Identifying energy bottlenecks in • Error reporting/Alert manufacturing plants conditions
  17. 17. Experiment 4: eParticipation - Social Media First Pilot: The Digital Fort Project, Issy Les MoulineauxA pilot on the aggregation of Media Technologies using 3D, cross-media,community reporting and context aware mobile applications to includecitizens in the urban innovation process.Test how eMedia technologies can be aggregated to enable citizens totake part in urban planning of the City of the Future & to explore itsHistory
  18. 18. Second Pilot: United Kingdom Manchester City Library CaseThe pilot will enhance the work of two existing projects being run byManchester City Council – the refurbishment of Manchester CentralLibrary, and Manchester City Galleries‟ Decoding Art project.The goal is to use context aware mobile applications, QR codes,Community Reporters and 3D Models to involve citizens in the urbandevelopment process and in sharing artistic content.
  19. 19. Towards Sustainable ImpactsIn order to create a sustainable impact two actions will be undertaken: thedevelopment of “Cross Border Piloting Service” and the setting-up ofThematic 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
