About the Workshopp

A Living Lab is an environment in which researchers, developers and users cooperate with the common objective of delivering a tested product, solution or service respecting the users’ requirements and in a shortest time possible. The environment may be a city, a region within a country, an industry, a supply chain or a whole country.

In Living Labs, people exploit opportunities provided by ICT to connect themselves. The cooperation of companies, government organizations, universities and other research institutions in an accelerated implementation of ICT-powered solutions and services may be considered a big, broadly conceptualized laboratory. Since numerous individuals are involved in co-creation (user-driven innovation), such a laboratory is known as a Living Lab.

In the Workshop possible contributions of the Living Labs to innovativeness will be discussed. Current activities and development plans of some Living Labs in Europe will be presented. Opportunities provided by the European Network of Living Labs – ENoLL will be elaborated. Challenges for the Living Labs development in Central Europe will be discussed by the deans as the university executives. Possible areas of the joint cross-border projects and actions will be suggested.

English is the working language of the event.
