Why Open Living Lab Public Private Partnership? We want to strengthen the open Research Development and Innova6on ecosystem of the growing community of European Living Labs, ins6tu6onally, ﬁnancially and in terms of its RDI infrastructure, including new avenues of research and experimenta6on in social and other sciences. This can be supported through the cons6tu6on of a Public Private Partnership -‐ Open Living Labs PPP-‐ to be launched in the ﬁnal years of the 7th Framework Programme and consequently, this having the poten6al to change drama6cally the innova6on landscape in Europe in Horizon 2020.
Open Living Labs PPP • Living Labs propose all-‐inclusive, people-‐driven, open and collabora7ve ways through local open innova7on ecosystems applying the European Partnership Model. • Firms, academia, ci7es and public agencies collaborate and beneﬁt from engaging people in crea7ve innova7on through Living Labs. • Real-‐life ICT concepts, designs and processes engage demand side players – including public services and people as users and ci7zens – in open, human-‐centric and systemic RDI. • Large-‐scale experimenta7on of the Living Lab RDI approach will bring about innova7ons that leads to local and global entrepreneurship, new types of ﬁrms – even new social and economic enterprises – and the renewal of public and private services as well as local and global markets and industries. • The aim is to increase the EU’s ROI on RDI funding by achieving eﬀec7ve and sustainable exploita7on of research results, directly bridging R&D with the market.
Where we started from? (1/2) • Long-‐term vision: Europe as a dynamic, mul7-‐layer and mul7dimensional Innova7on ecosystem aligned with the Europe 2020 Strategy. • ENoLL PPP ini7a7ve developed during 2010 and publicly announced in Ghent (Dec 2010). • ENoLL Council core group developing ini7al policy paper followed by open and wide consulta7on • New global Higher Educa7on and Research network addressing Living Lab needs in par7cular the facilita7on of open user-‐driven innova7on • Training and coaching on Living Labs learning
Where we started from? (2/2) • Living Labs as Open Access Pla^orms for Large Scale pilot projects with a focus on the social aspects of technology applica7ons. Sustainable Smart Ci7es and Regions • Alliance with local, regional, na7onal Authori7es to integrate Living Lab innova7on and sustainability policies • Living Labs as part of the Future Internet Public Private Partnership (FI PPP) • Cross-‐border and cross-‐thema7c collabora7on addressing the key challenges and business opportuni7es at a global scale (results from variety of ini7a7ves such as Apollon, Smart Ci7es etc.) • Large-‐scale user behaviour transforma7on through social and societal innova7on

Open Living Labs PPP (1/2) • Strategic Innova.on Ecosystems, large-‐scale pilot ini7a7ves aiming to s7mulate the growth and development of Living Lab innova7on ecosystems across a broad spectrum of sectors and at diﬀerent levels of governance. • Enabling Ac.ons, four strands of ac7vity (plus one support ac7on) covering a range of areas that support and reinforce the strategic innova7on ecosystems and deﬁned as: – Knowledge Crea7on – Talent Development, Capacity Building, and Job Crea7on – New Policy Instruments – Interna7onal Coopera7on Coordina7on, Dissemina7on and Engagement
Open Living Labs PPP (2/2) • Large-‐scale ini7a7ves s7mula7ng the development and growth of innova7on ecosystems, linking the research Community to communi7es of ci7zens, businesses and public authori7es across Europe • Projects could be selected according to a mul7-‐stage process allowing for the aggrega7on of strategic objec7ves and the mobiliza7on of all relevant stakeholders, and can be of two types: – Cross-‐Thema.c pilots: focus on a speciﬁc social challenges, linking with on-‐going research in the relevant domains. The larger-‐scale ini7a7ves of this type will explore their ﬁeld as a complex mul7-‐level system i.e at local, rural, urban, regional, na7onal, EU and global levels. – Smart Places: involving networks of a speciﬁc territorial model – Smart Ci7es, Smart Rivers, Smart Regions, etc. – as integrated systems, with a strongly transversal approach with respect to the sectors iden7ﬁed in the cross-‐thema7c pilotswhile at the same 7me building a bojom up “smart specializa7on” in the areas concerned . Strong emphasis on Local Digital Agendas linked to local and regional communi7es and development strategies such as ERDF, with extensive networks 7ed to research systems in Europe such as the European Research Area (ERA) and the EIT.
Enabling Ac7ons • Enabling Ac7ons aim to contribute towards the construc7on of sustainable European Living Lab infrastructures – both methodologies and societal structures – required to promote and s7mulate innova7on processes on an on-‐going basis • Enabling Ac7ons structured according to four Strands and one programme support ac7on as follows: – Knowledge Crea7on – Talent Development, Capacity Building, and Job Crea7on – New Policy Instruments – Interna7onal Coopera7on • Coordina7on, Dissemina7on and Engagement
Strand 1 Knowledge Crea7on • Research required to develop emerging topics that are either not adequately dealt with in other programmes or that require a deep mul7-‐ disciplinary (i.e cross-‐programme) and mul7-‐stakeholder approach in order to produce relevant results for Living Lab ecosystems • Thema7c areas: – Understanding the User Experience – Complex Innova7on Systems – Living Lab Governance – Evalua7on and Impact Assessment
Strand 2 Talent Development, Capacity Building, and Job Crea7on • Addresses the new challenges for educa7on and learning for the capaci7es and skills required to support diﬀused Living Lab innova7on ecosystems and the new learning and educa7onal paradigms thrown up by the Living Lab approach itself • Thema7c areas: – Innova7ve Learning Systems – Ac7on and Prac7ce-‐based Learning – Skills and Capaci7es – Learning Repository
Strand 3 New Policy Instruments • Tes7ng new approaches to suppor7ng innova7on in the public interest, as well as promo7ng the uptake of best prac7ce in public administra7ons at all levels • The thema7c areas: – Coordina7on of funding sources – Public Procurement – Private ﬁnancing – Crowdfunding and similar approaches
Strand 4 Interna7onal Coopera7on • Beyond the possibility of networking with exis7ng knowledge and excellence abroad, this strand aims to capture and incorporate diﬀerent preferences, needs and meanings of consumers in order to bejer adapt products and services to diﬀerent cultures and regions. • Through ENoLL the opportunity to provide services to (re)-‐deﬁne, localize and co-‐create ICT innova7ons in diﬀerent parts of the world, making them truly universal • Speciﬁc features in this strand include: – Special requirements common to interna7onal coopera7on ini7a7ves – Links with relevant EU ini7a7ves in INCO, ENPI, etc. – The par7cipa7ng role for interna7onal organisa7ons such as the UN and its agencies, the World Bank, etc.
Coordina7on, Dissemina7on and Engagement • Suppor7ng mechanism for the en7re programme, par7cularly: – Marketplace/exchange pla^orm between on-‐going projects and with actors external to the programme, including mechanisms such as challenges, crowdsourcing, etc. – Opera7onal network support and coordina7on – Dissemina7on and engagement (media channels, workshops and events, etc.) – Recommenda7ons for the full-‐scale Open Living Labs PPP in Horizon 2020 • Ac7on to ensure the full exploita7on of the results: – Interlinking the proposed enabling ac7ons aiming to the deﬁni7on of an instrument (such as a European Ins7tute for Social and Societal Innova7on) a globally compe77ve university-‐level ins7tu7on
Added Value of the Living Labs • Crea7ng the process of selec7ng the concrete cases represen7ng the added value of the community to the EU Innova7on System • Survey the Community to gather the relevant informa7on based on high-‐ level KPIs • Iden7fying the most representa7ve cases to support the Open Living Labs PPP -‐ini7a7ve • Introducing the evidence in the White paper draF
