Vitalise-Project / Harmonisation Board

VITALISE Harmonisation Board

The VITALISE Harmonisation Board is comprised of Health and Wellbeing Living Lab representatives from the VITALISE Consortium, as well as external Living Lab and Harmonization procedures experts. The ultimate goal of the Harmonisation Board is to define the next Standard Versions for Living Labs.

As resilient research and innovation infrastructures, Living Labs need a harmonisation framework to achieve more cost efficiency, optimal use of time and resources and wider exploitation of research results from local communities to offer their valuable services in the Research and Development community. Addressing the need for sustainable business models for Living Labs, VITALISE project introduces the Harmonisation Board, a group of internal and external Living Labs and Harmonisation experts that will meet once every six months (along with the Harmonisation Body)  to discuss about the next Standard Versions for Living Labs.

Meet our Team of Living Labs and Harmonisation Experts!
