Short description

Living labs are a modern way of creating user-centred environments that enable innovation, co-creation and start-up development. Living labs integrate research and innovation processes in real life communities and settings.

The JRC launched a call for expressions of interest to co-create living labs in two of their research sites Ispra, Italy and Petten, the Netherlands for smart city solutions.

The two campuses effectively simulate urban environments given the large number of staff, buioldings, roads and utilities on the two sites, combined with the scientific expertise in multiple disciplines, dedicated experimental facilities and high-speed communication networks.
