Change the future together. Co-creating global collaborations


Wednesday, 8th September, 11:30-13:00 CEST

Living Labs are becoming a global phenomenon more and more. At ENoLL we are lucky to be connected to many local/regional initiatives around the globe, bringing together living lab practitioners in their regions. During this session we want to give you the opportunity to discover them all and join the discussion on how these initiatives can work together to co-create global collaborations.

The session will start with an introduction to the following initiatives of living labs:

  • ALLIN – Australian Living Lab International Network
  • Francophonie Living Labs – open space for French-speaking Living Labs
  • Regional Living Lab Summits, Istanbul – Annual gathering of Living labs in the Balkans, Near & Central Asia, Turkey & Middle East region
  • KLID – Korea Local Information research & Development Institute
