THE LAUNCH OF THE ANDALUSIAN NETWORK OF LIVING LABS AND SOCIAL SPACES OF RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

In mid September, the Institute of Innovation for Human Wellbeing (I2BC), leader in the provision of innovative solutions that improve people’s wellbeing, launched the PLI (People Led Innovation) network. The PLI network, or Red PLI as it is known in Spanish, is the Andalusian Network  of Living Labs and Social Spaces for Research and Innovation (SSRIs). This initiative was launched within the framework of the European Project MedLab and forms part of the federated Social Network Lorea. 

This network makes it possible to coordinate and bring together people who work in the field of open innovation and social innovation in Andalusia, involving various groups of citizens as well as public and private agents interested in this subject.The development of this Network was agreed by the participants in the Ist Conference on Andalusian Living Labs and Social Spaces for Research and Innovation that took place in Malaga last June and was organised by the I2BC.

This Network strengthens the leadership of Andalusia in this field, a region with 8 Living Labs officially registered in the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) and 5 SSRIs acknowledged by the Spanish Platform eVia. 


 

Innovating 4development

Joint EnoLL-FAO Workshop, Rome, 25-26 January 2011


The Living Lab approach for the development of innovative Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services is proving an effective way to bring true and sustainable innovation to the broader dynamics of development at both the local and regional levels. The principle of co-design within a broad partnership of all the stakeholders concerned with the future of a community not only produces innovative technologies but equally promotes the emergence of new forms of collaboration and the behavioural transformation required to make the shift towards sustainable forms of human activity.

This linkage became evident through the recently-concludedEU-funded “Collaboration@Rural” project and is at the basis for the “Social Spaces for Research and Innovation” network promoting Living Labs for innovative local communities in Spain. Further, the EU-funded “MedLab” and “CentraLab” projects are validating the role of Living Labs as tools for regional development and building multi-level inter-regional Living Lab networks. In order to consolidate this process and introduce the international cooperation dimension to it, ENoLL (The European Network of Living Labs) and FAO (The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly promote concrete initiatives applying the Living Lab approach to rural and community development worldwide.

The aim of this two-day workshop is to explore the potential for cooperation under the umbrella of the ENoLL-FAO Memorandum of Understanding, broaden the partnership of actors and agencies interested in collaboration and take stock of current initiatives amenable to integration with the Living Lab approach. Agenda
