Evaluation process


To ensure high-value added exchanges within the network and quality outputs from ENoLL certified living labs, membership is limited to those organisations able to demonstrate the consistent use of a living lab approach.


As such, ENoLL living labs undergo a structural and methodological quality assessment on their maturity as an innovation ecosystem. This seal of quality makes ENoLL living labs the global standard on user-driven innovation.


Complete applications are evaluated by a committee of 3 individual experts. These 3 evaluators are selected from a pool of long-standing living lab practitioners from the network. Their selection is done to ensure geographic and thematic diversity and avoid any conflict of interest.


Evaluation process


  • Submission of the completed form
  • Payment of the evaluation fee
  • Eligibility check by ENoLL office
  • Review of application by Evaluation Committee and request of further support material if necessary
  • Applicant receives evaluation report



Please consult the Application guidelines wave 2023 brochure for more information on the evaluation criteria and frequently asked questions.
