A big thank you to all our supporters for the NTN Innovation Booster ‘Living Labs for Energy Decarbonisation’. Together we can make an impact and reduce our carbon footprint! And for International Women’s Day, we are pleased to present a well-balanced consortium.

- Joelle Mastelic

Présidente, Energy Living Lab Association

Consortium

Each individual «NTN – Innovation Booster» is supported by a consortium consisting of representatives of the relevant stakeholders from universities and business/society, who together wish to assume responsibility for the 

successful implementation of such an «NTN – Innovation Booster». The consortium is therefore the responsible body of an «NTN – Innovation Booster» and jointly represents it to the outside world. The Consortium is a People, Public, Private, Partnership  

Supporting Networks

Innovation channels who have an existing relationship with potential implementation partners and commit to marketing and promoting the ‘NTN Booster Living Labs for Decarbonisation for the benefit of their members. 

Implementation Partners

Implementation partners are those stakeholders who implement the innovation ideas, thus creating economic added value. These can be start-ups, SMEs or larger companies that offer products or services and create economic added value. However, they can also be non-profit organisations such as municipal administrations that can generate societal benefits and reduce public costs through the implementation of innovations. 

It is expected that implementation partners part fund the innovation teams for amounts from 5kCHF to 20kCHF depending on the innovation product/service and Living Lab. 

Living Lab

“A living lab is an innovation intermediary, which orchestrates an ecosystem of actors in a specific region. Its goal is to co-design products and services, in an iterative way, with key stakeholders in a public private people partnership and in a real-life setting.  One of the outcomes of this co-design process is the co-creation of social value (benefit). To achieve its objectives, the Living Lab mobilises existing innovation tools and methods or develop new ones.» (Mastelic, 2019) 

 

The Living Lab Managers are the Innovation Team Leaders: “regional catalysts, who are trained and certified in co-design and the living lab process. Living Lab managers facilitate the Innovation teams through the co-design process. Living Labs are members of The Energy Living Lab Association and social franchises. 

Innovation Teams

Innovation teams operate through the living labs and comprise living lab managers, implementation partners, university representatives and ideally, customers who are expected to benefit from the planned innovations. They may also include other key stakeholders who play a role in developing the idea, such as regulatory authorities. 

Leading House

This is a non-profit organisation that acts as an applicant vis-à-vis Innosuisse and on behalf of the consortium. The leading house assumes responsibility vis-à-vis Innosuisse for processing the «NTN – Innovation Boosters». The leading house supports the consortium in the conception and implementation of the «NTN – Innovation Boosters». 

 

The leading house is the Energy Living Lab Association with President – Joelle Mastelic. The project manager of the leading house is Fiona Zimmermann. 

The Energy Living Lab Association is the Franchiser of the Living Labs, providing guidance and training as well as certification of living labs. 

Research Partners

Research, document and publish the scientific findings including sciencebased innovations that go beyond the latest technology or knowledge and require an exchange of knowhow and/or technology between the university and implementation partners.  

 

The research partners are HES SOZHAW and SUPSI
