The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) is a community of currently 320+ Living Labs, primarily located in Europe (but also in other parts of the world), with a vision and sustainable strategy for enhancing innovation on a systematic basis. ENoLL is perhaps the most extensive and diverse innovation network in Europe which aims to support co-creative, human-centric and user-driven research, development, and innovation, in order to better cater for people’s needs and improve their lives. The Digital Spaces Living Lab (DSLL) was founded in 2008 in Sofia, Bulgaria, to support industrial and academic partners working in the field of new digital media technologies, location-based services (LBS) and smart cities. DSLL is a member of ENoLL since 2008. In his presentation Stavri will talk about what it is to run a living lab and share some insights from the life of a living lab, including recent trials, projects, and other activities, in which DSLL has been involved.
