Living Lab – Reminder

“A Living Lab is an environment, in which you will have access to the most valuable resources for your business : meet all the stakeholders of your industry, test your offer with real feedbacks, co-create with a diversity of point of views to make your offer to fit with the market need.”

The 3 main assets of a Living Lab

  1. Co-creation: bring players together with a diversity of knowledge, experience and point of views to enhance ideation and develop new concepts.
  2. Public-Private stakeholders mix: customers, companies, academics, public and civic bodies, this stakeholders mix is a part of the co-creation process, every building needs bricks stuck together.
  3. Real conditions and market feedbacks: 1 + 2 = 3! Concepts co-created by a mix of different stakeholders, answer to the real need(s) of the market.

Why should I join one? #maker

If you have a project or an initiative in the field of development of the Lab, you should join for many reasons:

  • to meet key players and stakeholders in your local industry
  • to test your project and make it grow by taking every point of view into account
  • to make it happen, you need to work you plan in real conditions to get valuable feedbacks from users
  • to test and adapt your POC in order your project fit with the market
