Open LL Jam

We listen to your voice! Co-design and propose a solution to the OLLD16 challenges with your newly met team members.

andNow you have the chance to co-create solutions by changing ideas and experience, discuss potential solutions with other experienced fellows, who share similar innovation challenges in their organisations and regions.

The same way this challenge is an opportunity to influence directly ENOLL’s focus areas’ (Expert Groups) strategy and future.

We would like to see ideas that can be adopted in the environment of your own Living Lab, company, city, university or municipality.

You have four days to go through on pros and cons of your proposal, select the team’s best proposal, build up the action plan, pitch it to the international open innovation audience and get publicity to your organisation through the publication that will be inspired by the challenge. All proposed solutions’ feasibility will be assessed by the ENoLL Board.

Day 4: Participation on the Pitching Session (2 min) during Closing speeches

Topics:

(1) SMART CITIES

Network of networks (ENoLL’s) role helping Cities and Regions operating as Living Labs

LL approach promotes co-creation and experimentation in smart cities and regions. Likewise ENoLL as a network of networks is the matchmaker and contact point for transnational collaboration helping cities, regions, organisations and individuals to find the co-creation and experimentation partners from other countries.

Individual Living Labs are often locally orchestrating the smart city and smart region collaboration among the different stakeholders (SMEs, start-ups, social enterprises, corporations, cities, academia, local authorities, citizens etc.). How is this type of collaboration created, developed and what are the ways that local LLs and ENoLL can create the needed added value for different stakeholders?

Please answer the following questions in your proposal:

– What LL type of methodologies would you list, highlight to attract different stakeholders to co-create new solutions (services, products, processes, business models, social innovation etc).

– How LLers will be the interactors between different stakeholders and different cities, regions and countries?

– What would be a viable business model for Living Labs/ENoLL in connecting your region and city?  

(2) COLLABORATIONS

Project partnerships – Overseas collaborations and Matchmaking between ENoLL Members

Are you working on European and/or overseas purpose driven projects based on Open Innovation and Living Labs approach, or do you want to create / join one around a dedicated topic? Or would you like to purchase tools or consultancy help from an another LL expert?

Please answer the following questions in your proposal:

  • What kind of partner/project search methods (face2face e.g. the ENoLL expert groups, search engine, colleagues’ recommendations ect.) would you prefer to use?
  • In which format do you think is the best to submit the skills and competences of the researchers and the natural beneficiaries such as firms, cities, or other stakeholders needed for a winning consortium aiming for real societal impact? (Provide a sales pitch introducing your own competences as an example)

Forming a strong and effective project consortium can be a challenging task if the necessary information is not available or not effectively shared. We are working on different process flows to create the most ideal methods and the tool of collecting interest and assess suitability for each proposal.

– What recommendations would you give us to make this structure the best possible?

(3) EDUCATION

ENoLL Learning Lab – Market Place for the expertise, products and services based on Living Labs approach

ENoLL’s richness is that Living Lab methodology is not one homogenous practice and research stream, but it embraces many different approaches to innovation in various different fields and purposes. Our network’s strength is in its diversity and broad knowledge of open innovation and the user and multi stakeholder engagement methodologies, tools and the related business models.

The aim is to make these local and regional assets more visible and to transfer the knowledge to become a sustainable profit source for members. Potentially by offering them for external clients (such as the firms, cities and HEIs; organisations such as the UN, Unesco, WB etc.) also in cross-border contexts.

Please answer the following questions in your proposal:

  • What would be your recommendation for the format and steps to set up/extend the ENoLL Learning Lab and Market Place?
  • What would be your recommendation for a future business model benefiting both those selling their services and ENoLL providing the platform?

(4) INDUSTRIAL

Fast tract Living Lab Innovation to test, experiment, launch pilot project or co-create from scratch in cross-border context – Industrial partnership

One of ENoLL’s aim is with the help of the LL network to cover many countries to provide companies an access point for rapid experimentation in different markets. Bringing Living Labs to a next level of innovation actions, by enforcing collaboration with industrial partners.

The below call is a tool to bring groups of Living Labs closer to the industrial sphere.

Your organization either expressed interest or based on your profile you have been chosen to start building a consortium/concept paper to this specific call.

The FTIPilot-01-2016 call: supports projects undertaking innovation from the demonstration stage through to market uptake, including stages such as piloting, test-beds, systems validation in real world/working conditions, validation of business models, pre-normative research, and standard-setting. It targets relatively mature new technologies, concepts, processes and business models that need a last development step to reach the market and achieve wider deployment.

Please answer the following questions in your proposal:

  • Start your concept paper/mission statement to answer the scope of the mentioned project during the OLLD2016 challenge days
  • Based on your experience what is the best way to motivate/convince companies/industrial partners to take users on board and embrace Open Innovation methodologies during their development projects
  • Challenges and obstacles faced during R&D+I projects in collaboration with industrial partners

 

(5) RESEARCH

Building up the LivingLab/ENoLL Research agenda

Create a research agenda for Living Labs/ENoLL focusing on how:

  • LLs +/& ENoLL as the leader of purpose driven research on LLs and Open Innovation
  • LLs +/& ENoLL will be able to provide evidence based research or evaluation on LLs results and the progress of the movement for our stakeholders, clients, financers and the LLs themselves – consider selling evaluation research as a service
  • How to make the research agenda attractive among the leading researcher and how to invite the high education students to the research work
  • How to identify new research areas in Living Labs and how to evaluate their importance for the scientific and societal development

(6) DESIGN

Living Labs as tools for user driven and design enabled innovation

Design-driven and user-driven activities are strongly linked, compatible and often merged by Living Labs in their daily operations. Make concrete proposals on how to better integrate design, user-driven innovation and other non-technological drivers into innovation policy and support.

– What would be the tool(S)/method(S) to accent the enabling role of LLs used on different domains by facilitating user centred and design-driven innovation?

– How Living Labs’ stronger leadership in Design could help in European, North American and overseas collaborative projects?

– What kind of Living Lab methodologies/concept would you recommend to apply in areas such as Design processes for City services and Citizen engagement?
