SESSION WITH ENOLL'S ACTION ORIENTED TASK FORCES
Action Oriented Task Forces are special Interest Groups gathered around the topics at the center of ENoLL’s work. First 45 minutes of the session will be open to public.
The main challenge for this ENoLL task force is to:
- a) Increase the social innovation impact of living labs (and demonstrate this).
- b) Promote collaborative working and investment in LLs as a result of a)
- c) Collectively achieve greater impact globally e.g. influence social policy
This task force’s focus is to support local, decentralized and distributed transformation enabling a closer collaboration and a better understanding about the actions that are needed to address social issues in specific contexts/regions using social innovation specialization strategies.
We are confronted today to complex challenges related to energy and environment. This is not the first time in history that such questions arise linked to transition toward a more sustainable society. Today, scenarios of what will happen to the next generation if a collective effort is not made during the next decade are frightening.
Generating a global movement toward a more sustainable society needs different elements:
- Analysis of the actual situation (already made by groups of researchers such as IPCC)
- Identification of best practices, proven successful in a specific contexts
- Identification of what does not work and what to stop investing in
- Development of new products, services, programs, methods
- Coordination, scalability and replicability of such practices
- Measurement of impact of the practices put in place and feedback loops
The ENoLL Action-Oriented Task Force on Social Impact of AI is aiming at providing a practical approach to the questions related to the social transformations associated to the development of the Artificial Intelligence, in the general framework of the Digital Transformation. Living Labs appear as relevant infrastructures for the potential co-creation of products and services based on AI in Europe and the world, but fundamentally, to anticipate the societal changes needed to provide a trustful deployment of such transformations by empowering everyone to innovate without leaving anyone behind, due to the digital gap
The main objective for this ENoLL Action-Oriented Task Force is to consolidate a critical mass of stakeholders –both from the ENoLL Community and externals- around strategic projects in the topic of Rural Living Labs, to jointly tackle in an efficient way the main challenges -namely: Depopulation, Sustainability, SME’s digitalization, rural tourism, and Smart Agrifood- in order to facilitate a systemic transition to a sustainable innovation ecosystem.
The session is hosted by Luis Navarro López (Guadalinfo) and Milica Trajković (Biosense Institute)
This ENoLL Action-Oriented Task Force is open Community of living labs where research, innovation, methodologies and best practices on health and wellbeing are credited and shared easily, transparently and trustfully. Thus, the mission of the ENoLL Action Oriented Task Force on Health and Well-being is to activate and boost a collaborative ecosystem among Living Labs interested in the domains of Health and Well-being, giving visibility of their added value at European and international level and attracting key actors within the public and private sector.
