The value of (networked) Living Labs in the design and development of smart ICTs for well-being

T 007, 28/09/2010 (16:00-17:30)

Living labs can help establish cross-border co-operation for new, innovative and smart ICT solutions and future internet services to enhance citizens’ well-being.

An international panel of SMEs and public organisations will explore the value of living labs. Concrete examples of co-operation models with stakeholders will include the Apollon and Fireball projects as well as some from the European network of living labs, which is co-organising this session. Discussions will include how public-private partnerships can be established with citizen involvement in order to develop future internet services, alongside what methods and processes should be used. SMEs and organisations dealing with future internet services and smart cities are invited to participate in this session, where the focus will be on the use of these services to improve our well-being.

Looking forward to this discussion as we have some ideas around smart cities and future internet. Living Labs could have a bigger impact in the current R&D ecosystem.
