Challenges related to Living Labs or open innovation labs
What is a Living Lab and what is collective innovation?
A Living Lab is a system of consultation, open innovation, and co-creation, bringing together public actors, private actors, companies, associations, research laboratories, communities, and users, in order to collectively develop and evaluate innovative solutions in technology, organization and services bringing new solutions for communities and society. The Living Lab certification can be awarded by the ENOLL association (European Network of Living Labs).
What are the challenges related to Living Labs?
Because of their experimental nature, setting up efficient Living Labs is not without challenges. Alcimed identifies three of the main ones:
How do we differentiate ourselves? How do we become a vector of attractiveness on its territory?
How do we bring together stakeholders and get them involved in the innovation ecosystem of the territory?
How do we develop a model and make its activities sustainable?
How do we support you in your Living Lab projects?
Alcimed has supported the design of Living Labs projects as well as the repositioning of already mature Living Labs. Our team relies on its ability to design the most appropriate tool possible (high added value strategy and a clear and coherent offer coupled with an efficient operating model), as well as its knowledge of the realities of the “life” of this type of tool. We also have the capacity to mobilize a network of experts in this type of process and source international feedback.
The stakeholders we support in this process are often local authorities (groups of municipalities, agglomerations, regions, etc.), but our team also supports other public and private players (associations, federations, start-ups, etc.).
The types of projects we carry out for our clients are:
