THE LIVING LAB
The Living Lab is a methodology that stimulates collaboration between heterogeneous actors in order to develop unexpected discoveries.
Citizens, inhabitants or users are considered as key players in research and innovation processes. This early involvement of the population accelerates the production of new uses/ services while reducing the risks and costs inherent to innovation.
It is a place of mediation and porosity between science, arts and culture, between researchers, communities, companies and the population. This laboratory makes it possible to imagine, design and prototype new objects, new services, new interactions in response to emerging economic and social issues.
