Living Lab Markers
Wednesday, 8th September, 14:00 – 15:15 CEST
The Living Lab Markers are a tool to qualify and evaluate collective innovation processes with a user-centered approach. It allows to implement a participatory and user-centered project and carry out a continuous evaluation of the specificities of the methodology throughout the project.
More information on the tool can be found here: https://www.marqueurs-livinglab.org/?lang=en.
By participating in this session, you will be able to discover and appropriate for the first time these markers in order to evaluate at what scale you apply the Living Lab method in your projects. You will also be able to enrich the Living Lab community by giving us your opinion on how to facilitate the use of this tool.
This interactive session will be limited to a maximum of 50 participants. Please register upfront and be so kind as to unregister yourself if you no longer can make it. This allows other participants to join.
This tool is for anyone who has an idea and wants to implement it with a Living Lab methodology. It allows to
- Implement a participatory and user-centered project and carry out a continuous evaluation of the specificities of the methodology throughout the project.
- Evaluate a project already underway, and make it evolve to integrate a Living Lab approach.
- Facilitate the definition of an action plan for the implementation of a Living Lab approach.
