Vitalise-Project / Harmonisation Board

Meet our Harmonisation Board!

Representatives of the VITALISE Consortium, as well as external Living Lab and harmonisation experts unite under the Harmonisation Board to define the next Standards Version for Health and Wellbeing 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 introduces the Harmonisation Board, a group of internal and external Living Labs and Harmonisation experts that will meet every six months (along with the Harmonisation Body)  to discuss about the next Standard Versions for Living Labs.
