Strengthening innovation capacity together with users...
The European Network of Living Labs, ENoLL, brings together private-public partnership-based organizations ("Living Labs"), who are committed to work together with users openly in realistic contexts, as a way to boost product or service innovation capacity.
Organizations committed to engage and empower users to take part in sustainable innovation processes are, as of 7th October 2009, invited to apply for membership in ENoLL.
Find out more about the application for membership on www.openlivinglabs.eu.
What's a Living Lab?
A Living Lab is both a methodology for User Driven Innovation and the organizations that primarily use it.
Living Lab is about experimentation and co-creation with real users in real life environments, where users together with researchers, firms and public institutions look together for new solutions, new products, new services or new business models.
But also Living Labs are about societal involvement, about promoting innovation in a societal basis, involving academia, SMEs, public institutions and large companies in an Open Innovation process that because it happens in real environments has an immediate impact. This is how Living Labs aim to contribute to a new Innovation System where users and citizens become active actors and not only passive receivers.
