The Learning Lab Day (Day 0) is a one-day training offered to starter Living Labs and other Living Lab enthusiasts in learning all about the key elements and operations of Living Labs. The program brings together a group of Learning Lab mentees, select project partners from H2020 projects aiming to set-up Living Labs, expert Living Labbers from the ENoLL network and other key stakeholders in tailor-made lectures and case study presentations connecting theory to practice, as well as hands-on exercises to apply the learnings in your own context.

The learning lab day is the perfect kick-off to follow before the start of the official OLLD conference, providing a soft landing platform to the key components of Living Labs before diving into the deep end; expert presentations and high level discussions at the OLLD conference during the following days.
