A Technological Innovation Living Lab
Living Labs are open innovation environments in real-life settings in which user-driven innovation is fully integrated within the co-creation process of new services products, and societal infrastructure.
The Living Lab set up in CrossCult incorporates the following technological innovation:
- Research organisations support the project
- The project targets the development of new technological solutions (the CrossCult Platform)
- Stakeholders will develop an d evaluate the new solution
- Actors will collaboratively exchange and co-create the final solution
Which are the key elements of a Living Lab?
- An innovation design based on the usage of the technology
- An involvement of stakeholders from the early phase of the design
- A co-creation of the product, service or application
- A real world experimentation of the product, service or application
A four-step process
The CrossCult Living Lab (LL) developed based on the four identified flagship pilots, is set-up in a 4 step process:
Step 1 - Connect
- Identify relevant stakeholders to be involved in the LL and their context
- Understand the contexts of action in order to build on existing initiatives and relationships
- Create a first link to the project
Step 2 - Plan and Engage
- Create a shared vision of the object among stakeholders
- Support the endorsement of the role of local leader
Step 3 - Support and Govern
- Concretely engage local stakeholders in the design of a business model reinforcing the sustainability of the project outcomes
- Design a business model to make the initiatives sustainable
Step 4 - Manage and Track
