ENoLL Activity Report 2017 A review of the activities of the European Network of Living Labs for the year 2017


ENoLL Activity Report 2017

President’s Foreword The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) was established in 2006 during the Finnish Presidency of European Union promoting multi-stakeholder and citizen driven innovation, locally as well as internationally. The Helsinki Manifesto stated the aim of the Network in a way, which was is still relevant in 2017: The first phase of the European Network of Living Labs consisted of 20 Living Labs in 15 Member States. It is a cross-regional, cross-national and pre-market network, creating multi-stakeholder co-operation models for public-private-citizen-partnerships (PPCPs). The European Network of Living Labs establishes a European platform for collaborative and co-creative innovation, where the users are involved in and contribute to the innovation process. Living Labs provide a platform and infrastructure for innovation services to SMEs, international corporations, public sector agencies and individual citizens. This systematic and organized approach ensures that common methodologies and tools are developed across Europe that support, stimulate and accelerate the innovation process. The European Network of Living Labs also has a strong regional growth and development impact by facilitating and fostering regional innovation as interlinked with a European innovation system with a global reach.


After the Helsinki Manifesto, the rapidly growing number of European Union funded international Living lab projects as well as the many local Living lab communities indicated a strong need to support the network with a Brussels based hub. Consequently, in 2009 the leading Living labs as legal entities drew up the bylaws for the new non-profit association called ENoLL. Since then, 430+ Living labs all over the world have been labeled by ENoLL. During the past years, the application success rate has been 50% or less . Applicants’ failures have been mainly due to the lack of provided evidence on user engagement. In 2017, ENoLL labeled 13 new adherent members following a strict quality assessment procedure. Next to that, we welcomed two new Innovation Partners. During the past five years, the number ENoLL members fulfilling the membership criteria of the association bylaws has been between 102 and 127. In 2017, the number was 125. Today, researchers claim that Living labs are increasingly accepted as a prominent form of open innovation. It can be said, that the labeled Living labs also represent a plurality of contexts, methods and conceptualizations. Moreover, scholars claim that world’s cities and organizations apply living labs in heterogeneous fields and are rich with various concepts, methodologies, research streams, and tools. During the past years, cities have increasingly applied Living lab approach aiming to reinforce long-term participation and engagement of multiple stakeholders, suggesting various benefits to all stakeholders[i].

ENoLL Activity Report 2017

ENoLL members have long practical experience on cross-pollination of different types of scientific, technological, artistic and practical knowledge. Living Labs have the capacity and needed methods to orchestrate the cross-over innovation and experimentation processes. ENoLL members with direct access to the citizens have plenty to offer and help the European Union establish a connection with them. With scaling-up practice from local to trans-regional and trans-national communities, ENoLL and its members are creating bridges between different stakeholders and give access to simultaneous pilots and co-creation Europe-wide and globally. Effort of the association has been validated when ENoLL received Open Innovation Luminary Award 2016, for best Open Innovation Infrastructure Creation and when the European Commission nominated Tuija Hirvikoski from ENoLL council as a member of the Open Science Policy Platform promoting Commissioner Moedas’ three O’s strategy (Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the world). During 2017, together with the elected ENoLL council members, ENoLL office finalized association’s administrative transition period. Therefore, autumn 2017, the association could again start focusing on the maturity of Living Lab operations creating added value with and for ENoLL members and their clients. To support this work, ENoLL President appointed three Vice-Presidents: Artur Serra (i2Cat), whose mission was to open ENoLL to other types of labs; Anna Ståhlbröst (Botnia Living Lab) who worked on enhancing the research and innovation processes within the Living Labs in Europe; and Wim de Kinderen (City of Einthoven) who focused on the business side and economic impact of Living Labs. In 2017, ENoLL council member Fernando Vilarioño (UAB) successfully steered a joint co-writing process together with likeminded associations, organizations and individual experts aiming to create a roadmap for the future of Europe with the use of Living Labs that is aligned with the 3Os strategy. This process created an open document as an invitation to join The Manifesto for Innovation in Europe emphasizing innovation as human right. In 2017, the associations’ international collaboration also expanded to Japan, Australia, and Korea as ENoLL president was invited to consult local cities and their stakeholders. ENoLL signed a MoU with Future Centre Alliance Japan and its members are looking forward to benefit from increased collaboration also on a global scale. By reading through the next pages, you will see how far has the network progressed since its establishment and how the work of ENoLL members is impactful and wide ranging.

What we do

ENoLL Activity Report 2017


What we do 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.



ENoLL promotes the development of business and industry and the creation of tax revenue and jobs. Through the years ENoLL has labelled 430+ Living Labs from around the world maintained by municipalities, universities, regions and companies acting also as the development and piloting partners. Of these, 125 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.



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.
