What is a Living Lab ?

“A Living Lab is an innovation intermediary, which orchestrates an ecosystem of actors in a specific region. Its objective is to co-design products and services, in an iterative way, with the main stakeholders in a public-private partnership and in a real environment. One of the results of this co-design process is the co-creation of social value (benefit). One of the results of this co-design process is the co-creation of social value (benefit). In order to achieve its objectives, the Living Lab mobilises existing innovation tools or develops new ones.” Joelle Mastelic 2019.

Joelle's words about the Action Oriented Taskforce on Environment & Energy

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.
