These are exciting times in Living Lab and end-user engagement field, driven by continuous development of new Living Labs, new methodologies and new research concepts. Living Labs can be applied to many different fields and therefore the scope of the conference is wide and the programme is jam packed.

Challenges & Collaborations for living labs


Standing on the shoulders of life champions

LL as technology infrastructures

New and innovative technologies, such as road traffic safety solutions or multi-material 3D printing, need to be tested and up-scaled before they can enter the market successfully. Technology infrastructures are facilities, equipment, capabilities and support services where industrial players can find support to commercialise new products, processes and services, in full compliance with EU regulations. On the other hand, Research Infrastructures are facilities that provide resources and services for research communities to conduct research and foster innovation. This session will try to enlighten the position of the living labs as infrastructures through the lens of the European Commission and other active actors in the domain
