Are you a Living Lab or an individual interested in the Living Lab offerings and methodologies?We invite you to join us in the creation of a harmonized framework and common language for providing Living Lab services!
In recent years, Living Labs have emerged as resilient research and innovation infrastructures that enable research studies in real-life environments with the involvement of multiple stakeholders. Due to the lack of a harmonisation framework many project-oriented Living Labs that serve specific research purposes and have a lifecycle similar to a projects’ duration have emerged, leading to higher costs, non-optimal use of time and resources and limited exploitation of research results from local communities. At the same time Living Labs need sustainable business models to offer their valuable services in the Research and Development community.
It is time to address these challenges and bring all Living Labs together through our Harmonization Body to promote Open Research and Innovation.
