As in previous editions we would like to invite our members, stakeholders and Living Lab practitioners to contribute and co-create the agenda of the conference by submitting a workshop proposal. Workshops will take place on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th of August on the last two days of the conference.

The theme of OpenLivingLab Days 2016 is “Citizen Driven Innovation: Developing the innovation system that empowers everyone to innovate.” We are looking for workshops that allow participants to advance learning, collaboration and discussions in relation to citizen and community-driven innovation. Potential workshops themes could include Health & Active/Creative Aging, Social innovation, Smart Cities, Regional Living Labs, Education, Living Lab methodologies etc.

Submitted workshop proposals should include title, type, objectives, theme and brief outline. They should facilitate active discussions and constructive interactions on current or emerging topics relevant to Living Labs.

Workshop proposals should be submitted by Thursday April 21st (extended deadline) and will be evaluated by the OpenLivingLab Days Organising Committee based on various criteria including: quality and level of details of the proposed idea, theme of the workshop, its relevance to the conference theme, and the overall balance of the conference program.
