ENoLL Activity Report 2015 A review of the activities of the European Network of Living Labs 2015


President’s Foreword

ENoLL Activity Report 2015

President’s Foreword ENoLL has grown tremendously since its foundation in 2006. Through the years it has expanded in 9 waves and recognized more than 400 Living Labs. Its traditional summer school – now known as the ‘Open Living Lab days’ has become an annual event attracting living labbers as well as quadruple helix representatives from all over the world. Open Living Lab Days’15 was hosted in Turkey by Başakşehir Living Lab and has seen the highest number of attendants this far. ENoLL has grown to become a successful and powerful global network of Living Labs active in many different fields. Reflecting on the year 2015, many important milestones have been reached. ENoLL, an association that facilitates knowledge exchange, joint actions, project partnership and policy influencing, defined its vision “Empowering everyone to innovate” at the General Assembly held in February 2015. At the same Assembly five new Special Interest Groups were launched – those are: Urban and Smart City Living Labs, Regional Living Labs, Living Lab services for SMEs, Research and Future of Living Labs and Health Living Labs. These interest groups were created with the aim to bring together ENoLL members with shared interest and advance their knowledge in a particular field. Three new effective members also joined ENoLL’s close community this year – Barcelona Laboratori, Krakow Technology Park and Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.

“ENOLL HAS GROWN TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL AND POWERFUL GLOBAL NETWORK OF LIVING LABS ACTIVE IN MANY DIFFERENT FIELDS.”

Communication channels have been strengthened with two new publications – a “Citizen Driven Innovation Handbook” co-produced with World Bank aiming to introduce citizen-driven innovation to policy makers and change agents. Next to that, a booklet presenting ENoLL and its effective members titled “Introducing ENoLL and its Living Lab community” was published.

Living Labs

Living Labs refer to user-centred, open innovation ecosystems based on a systematic user co-creation approach integrating research and innovation processes in real life communities and settings. In practice, living labs place the citizen at the centre of innovation and have thus shown an ability to better mould the opportunities offered by new ICT concepts and solutions to specific needs and aspirations of local contexts, cultures, and creative potentials.

Living labs are both practice-driven organisations that facilitate and foster open, collaborative innovation, as well as real-life environments or arenas where both open innovation and user innovation processes, can be studied and subject to experiments, and where new solutions are developed. This unique capability enables living labs to generate concrete, tangible innovations based on user and community contributions, and at the same time to advance (academic) understanding of open and user innovation principles and processes.

Who we are

The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) is a global network of open innovation ecosystems (Living Labs) that places people at the centre of product and service development and innovation. The network and its members provide innovation services for small and medium-sized international companies, the public sector, organisations and citizens.

400

LIVING LABS AROUND THE WORLD

ENoLL promotes the development of business and industry and the creation of tax revenue and jobs. ENoLL has recognised nearly 400 living labs from around the world maintained by municipalities, universities, regions and companies acting also as the development and piloting partners. Of these, 170 make up the core for piloting European industry and innovation policy and are involved in in-depth cooperation with regions and the European Commission’s Directorates-General.

170

ARE THE CORE FOR PILOTING EUROPEAN INDUSTRY & INNOVATION

The ENoLL network aims at creating pan-European experiments and prototypes for new markets, based on the Digital Single Market. It is an open engagement platform where new business models can be experimented with and developed all based on a quadruple helix approach, creating safety nets for experiments and prototypes with new roles of the public sector as enabler and catalyser. ENoLL can combine European vertical specialisation domains (health, smart cities, creativity, education etc.) with horizontal and territorial specialisation.

Projects

The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL)’s participations as an association in several EU-funded projects are strategically important for the whole network.

PELARS is a project about learning and making.

We are studying how people learn about science, technology and mathematics when they use their hands as well as their heads. We’re exploring real technologies (kits, electronics systems &sensor systems) and customised furniture both designed specifically for the classroom that help teachers and learners understand what’s going on when people do science and maths - innovative concepts derived from the constraints & inspiring practices of real teachers themselves. The project kicked off in February 2014 with ENoLL leading the dissemination of the project and will be collaborating with members to conduct Living Lab tests of the tools and technology developed in the course of the research. More information about the project can be found at http://pelars.us/ or on PELARS project social media sites - @euPELARS on Twitter

JamToday aims to use game design principles

not just to create useful and meaningful games, but also to explain and design the context(such as the classroom) where games can be effectively implemented. Each year, JamToday organises game jams in multiple locations focusing on a particular theme and each year a pan European conference will be organized around one of the main areas of application: improving ICT skills, adopting healthier lifestyles and supporting learning of mathematics. The project kicked off in January 2014: During the Open Living Lab Day 2015 we shared best practice and exploited the game jam tool kit.

CreatiFI is a project introducing FIWARE

technologies to very large relevant communities of Creative Industries. CreatiFI aims to attract a large number of developers to participate in developing tools and services for creative communities. This initiative is developing a large amount of FIWARE prototypes and technically mature commercial viable FIWARE tools for the Creative Industries. A group of ENoLL members - Forum Virium Helsinki, i2Cat, iMinds - are part of the consortium and fully engaged to support CreatiFI developers and entrepreneurs. Within CreatiFI ENoLL supports SMEs in networking activities: building alliances for the future exploitation of their applications, new products and services. By doing so, ENoLL establishes a connection with many creative industries, understanding their needs and possibly proposing Living Lab methodologies as a way forward to develop/test/launch innovation. ENoLL finally links CreatiFI activities to the SPECIFI project and enthusiastic work done to build a EuropeanCreative Ring of connected, creative and smartcitizens/cities.

Design for Europe is a European initiative

that aims to help people use design to accelerate innovation across Europe, boosting economic growth and job creation. An international consortium is building a web platform, set of case studies and programme of events to share the knowledge and skills to innovate in business, the public sector and policymaking. In 2015 ENoLL contributed by hosting a Design for Europe workshop during the OpenLivingLab Days 2015. The brand-new web platformwas presented to a large, interested Living Lab audience, Thanks to this initiative the ENoLL office is extending substantially its network of contacts in the field of design.

Under the umbrella of FIWARE we are working on two additional strategic initiatives:

CONCORD is the 5-year Coordination Action

for facilitating and supporting the FIWARE- FIPPP programme. As part of the CONCORD project, ENoLL strongly contributed to the Open and Agile Smart Cities initiative announced at the Connected Smart Cities Conference. Follow FIWARE activities at @FIWARE

FIspace as a use case project of the FI-PPP,

FIspace aims at developing and validating novel Future-Internet-enabled solutions to address the pressing challenges arising in collaborative business networks, focussing on use cases from the agri-food, transport and logistics industries. FIspace focuses on exploiting, incorporating and validating the Generic Enablers provided by the FI-PPP Core Platform with the aim of realising an extensible collaboration service for business networks together with a set of innovative test applications that allow for radical improvements in how networked businesses can work in the future.

Get Involved How to become a member

The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) is both an open community and a legal non-profit association. If your organisation has activities and interests in user-driven open innovation, it may consider joining the community of benchmarked Living Labs as well as its association of fee-paying members. See all the different services according to the membership status here. The European Network of Living Labs has grown through annual ‘Waves’ of calls for membership since November 2006. Every year, candidate Living Labs are invited to submit an application to join the ENoLL network, and following an evaluation process a final selection of benchmarked Living Labs are granted the ENoLL label & welcomed to the network. Up to today, the 9 waves have resulted in 395 historically recognised Living Labs. You can discover the more information about the results of the 9th wave (August 2015) here and for your information, the 10th wave for membership will launch towards at the end of 2015.

The ENoLL international non-profit association is the legal entity created by the European Network of Living Labs in January 2010. It consists of Adherent Members, Effective Members, and Associated Members. All ENoLL-labelled Living Labs are automatically included as Adherent Members of the association, with observer rights in the General Assembly, and access to the general ENoLL information and events.

Adherent Members Adherent members are organisations that represent a Living Lab, which was duly selected according to the ENoLL selection process (also called a ‘Wave’). During this selection process, adherent member applicants provide ENoLL with a motivated application as a Living Lab. If the organisation meets the criteria set by the ENoLL association, adherent membership is granted to the applying organisation. These members are included in the ENoLL communication channels, and have the right to be present and participate in the ENoLL activities. These activities – only open to ENoLL members are: - General Assembly twice a year - Working Groups - Thematic Groups Adherent members do not pay any membership fees (only an annual administrative fee), and therefore have no voting rights in the General Assembly. Waves are initiated ad hoc on a more or less yearly basis, with the 9th Wave due to launch in early 2015.

Membership Application

ENoLL Yearly Membership Fee

By default, all ENoLL Living Labs are Adherent members, but if an ENoLL Living Lab wishes to upgrade to become an Effective Member, or an organisation wishes to support and participate in ENoLL activities, they provide the ENoLL Office in Brussels with a written application containing: - A copy of the registration as a legal entity - The bylaws of the organisation - A signed proxy for joining ENoLL - The details for the contact person - A list of official representatives who will be mandated to speak on behalf of ENoLL

The yearly fee is € 5.000 and should be paid at the beginning of each year. However, for new applicants registering at the second general assembly for the year, this yearly fee is reduced by 50%. The administrative fee is an annual payment of € 500

The ENoLL Council will present these applications to the ENoLL General Assembly, who can then approve them. Once the Application approved, the applying organisation pays the annual fee and thus becomes an associated or effective member.
