Barcelona, 21-23 September
Highlights from Open Living Lab Days 2023 in Barcelona
OpenLivingLab Days is the flagship annual event organized by the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL). It is a highly-anticipated gathering that brings together living labbers, public officials, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, and innovators from around the world. The event offers a unique platform for networking, exchanging best practices, and collaborating on cutting-edge projects and for reflecting on the latest trends and how to shape the future.
The OLLD exemplifies the spirit of collaborative innovation, where each session and discussion is a step towards addressing some of the most pressing challenges of our times. Amongst the numerous insightful presentations, the SWEET Lantern project stood out during the session titled « Race to Zero Emissions and Pollution: Projects, Practices, and Recommendations. » This presentation not only highlighted the project’s groundbreaking approach to sustainability but also underscored the urgency of our collective race towards a greener future.
Additionally, two insightful papers were presented. Roger Bär‘s « Integrated Impact Assessment of Living Labs » offered a deep dive into assessing the effectiveness of Living Labs, while Fiona Zimermann‘s paper discussed the art of building consensus in multidisciplinary teams, especially in co-designing energy transition interventions through Living Labs.
