Co-creative living labs for CWE

Co-creative living labs for CWE

Objective

The overall objective of the CoreLabs CA is to achieve a coordination of activities towards the establishment of co-creative Living Labs as the foundation of a Common European Innovation Infrastructure concept on several levels.

The activities to be coordinated towards that goal are:
- The harmonisation of existing and emerging Living Labs
- Initiatives within current and future CWE research initiatives (primarily Integrated Projects)
- Regional, national and IST RTD programmes
- All stakeholder organisations (public, academic, civic, industry, SMEs, etc.)

This includes the co-ordinated synergic development, harmonisation and networking of regional Living Labs initiatives, research projects, the establishment of a Living Labs Certificate and the creation of a common European Roadmap on relevant research topics.

The concept of "Living Labs" is relevant to the necessities of evaluating the mass deployment potential of ICT enabled Collaborative Working Environments solutions that stem from the results of re-search projects. Living Labs represent regional innovation environments focussing on user communities embedded within "real life". Additionally to the technological aspects Living Labs allow insight on to the human dimension of technology, which is of paramount importance for a successful societal deployment of new technologies. As a consequence of this potential, the Living Lab approach is considered as the natural candidate for the implementation of large scale evaluation, demonstration and validation activities related to ICT RTD.
