Training on Living Lab Methods and Tools

On 20 September 2023, a training offered to starter Living Labs and those eager to learn more about the methodology, will take place. By attending the training you can learn all about the key elements and operations of Living Labs. Prior to the September training, we are running a Virtual Learning Lab course. 

Where to stay in Barcelona

Barcelona is a vibrant city with plenty of options for all sorts of budget, a few steps away from the event venue – the World Trade Center. From this area you can also reach easily the city center, as well as the local beaches. Check out these hotels to join us at OLLD23!

As Barcelona will be celebrating La Mercè Festival during the same week until 26 September, when a lot of events will happen, we encourage you to book your accommodation in advance.
