What is (the value of) a Living Lab?

Living Lab is a real-life test and experimentation environment where users and producers co-create innovations

Public-Private-People Partnership (PPPP) for creation, prototyping, validating and testing new technologies, services, products etc in real-life contexts

Empower citizens (end-users) as active co-creators of value, ideas & innovations that can benefit the whole society

Moreover, Policy-makers & citizens can use Living Labs to design & refine new policies in real-life scenarios

Where does it come from and how did it evolve into ENoLL?

Originated for MIT (US), further developed in Europe

Supported by EC as bridging the gap between R&D and market entrance (faster take up of R&D results) and enable SMEs obstacles on local and regional markets in the fragmented European market place

Linked with EC policies and initiatives EU2020, Digital Agenda, especially through Smart Cities, EIP AHA, Future Internet, Design

Several Living Lab initiatives supported by the EC as well as national programmes

EIP AHA ENoLL Commitment

ENoLL published a commitment to EIP AHA Ac=on Group C2: Interoperable independent Living Solu=ons

Ac=ve in the Interoperability sub-group in the area of applica=on interoperability and suppor=ng the socio-economic evidence and implementa=on subgroups (mainly in the WPs related to User Empowerment and involvement)

ENoLL Commitment is built on following: Coordina=on of a pan-European community of Living Labs in the domain of Health

and AAL that will contribute to the availability of interoperable independent living solu=ons with special focus on applica;on, organiza;onal and service interoperability, and that will support cross-border development and tes;ng of solu;ons, considering contextual factors, business models and strong involvement of user communi=es

Predecessor of this commitment is the APOLLON project, carried out by many ENoLL members, and that has taken an important role in networking and harmonising Living Lab approaches throughout Europe

Results from the APOLLON project have been ocially transferred to ENoLL for open exploita;on towards the wider community of Living Labs, including the Health and Independent Living Thema=c Network

ENoLL is also involved in the FI-PPP as a partner in the CONCORD project suppor=ng one of the main FI-PPP pillars: the user driven approach 20/09/21

EIP AHA ENoLL Planned Activities

Based on the concept of community and consensus building and, exchange of knowledge and experiences, ENoLL carries out projects and relies on its members while collec=ng and bringing together knowledge from mul=ple projects and ac=ons carried out a local, regional and European level in the AHA domain. As part of its networking ac=vi=es, ENoLL plans for organising AHA workshops and networking ac=vi=es to:

Gather input from many projects about the current usage of standards, challenges and success stories in the implementa;on of interoperable solu;ons and applica;ons for Independent Living

Promote the usage in current and future projects of interoperable AHA solu;ons aligned with EIP-AHA plan and ac=ons.

Forster partnerships among the ENoLL members and between them and the FI-PPP and AALOA community as a plaYorm to design and implement these solu=ons and applica=ons involving many SMEs and many users all over Europe to gather evidence about return of investment
