Living Lab methodology handbook published

With the help of collaborative efforts of several individuals in ENoLL network, a new Living Lab Methodology Handbook has been published. This handbook, available on Scribd, was initiated under the coordination and support action “User Engagement for Large Scale Pilots in the Internet of Things” (U4IoT), where ENoLL and two ENoLL members - imec and Botnia Living Lab (Luleå University of Technology) - participate as consortium partners. U4IoT provides online and offline toolkits, workshops and other forms of support to actively engage end-users and citizens in the pilot projects of European IoT Large-scale pilots programme.

The aim of this Living Lab Methodology Handbook is to introduce research background and serve as a practical guidance for researchers and practitioners on Living Lab methodologies, co-creation and user engagement. It also aims to inspire the reader with the lessons learned from thorough research together with real-life cases. The handbook is specifically focusing on the topical area of Internet of Things, and it explains how the Living Lab approach can greatly support the research and innovation activities in that area. 

In addition to the handbook, a specific toolkit was recently created by ENoLL in the context of the U4IoT project to guide the researchers and practitioners through the innovation processes, with a special focus on user-engagement. This toolkit is available online at www.u4iot.eu/end-user-engagement-toolkit. 

Take a look at these recent outcomes on the U4IoT website and provide your valuable feedback via online feedback form on the website or directly to katariina.malmberg (at) enoll.org.
