Normandy Living Lab

Normandy Living Lab

The core mission of Normandy Living Lab (NLL) is to put collective intelligence at the service of concrete projects beneficial for our Region’s influence.

 

NLL became a member of ENoLL for the first time in 2007, and took the opportunity to join the network again in 2021 (15th wave).

 

Thanks to its wide variety of members and its continuous work with local authorities and communities, NLL is building a life-size testing environment covering all of Normandy. That way, it aims at being a vector for the co-creation of digital innovations, between designers and end-users, for a wide number of economic sectors.

 

Normandy Living Lab’s focus is on the efficient development of innovative products and services in the fields of digital agriculture, industry, health, smart territories and creative digital content, by systematically placing the product or service user at the heart of the innovation process.

 

Through its network of partners, NLL has the capacity to quickly source missing skills/technologies, while its proximity with local authorities and applicative sectors ensures the needs of the end-users are considered from the very beginning of each project thanks to their involvement.

 

Finally, NLL is supported by Pôle TES, a competitiveness cluster with over fifteen years of experience in the field of high digital technologies. TES’ mission is to imagine and co-design future ways of using technology by identifying key needs and challenges in order to develop innovation programmes that lead to improvements in its fields of action. This vocation of TES makes it the privileged leader of NLL and ensures that together open innovation and user innovation processes can be facilitated, tested and developed.

Methologies

NLL’s ambition is to promote an organisation where reflection and shared data and services will benefit local companies and all stakeholders involved in this initiative. NLL will therefore be used as a shared tool by the initiative partners to implement the living lab approach in other projects, for their benefit.

 

In order to provide an environment for open innovation activities to emerge, but also ensure their relevance, a particular process has been set up by Normandy Living Labs. It ensures continuous user engagement and support by accompanying the project upstream and making sure it follows the required steps. Support for the project starts at the very beginning, , i.e., at the “idea identification” stage and continues throughout the project to guarantee the innovation adoption and sustainability.

 

NLL is also able to provide methodological resources ranging from the creation of customer panels to support platforms. In line with our collaborative approach, if a specific need could not be covered by the equipment listed in annex, NLL is in on-going contact with privileged partners (e.g. other clusters, other eDIH whether in France or in Europe through DIHNAMO, the future EDIH of Normandy…) as well as competence centres (e.g. laboratories, testing platforms, etc.). Therefore, it is able to answer most of these specific needs on a case by case basis and respond to the project leaders’ expectations.

Tools

Normandy Living Labs, thanks to its wide network of partners, is able to provide access to support functions to match demand with project opportunities, as well as to carry out the actions defined in the service offer:

  • Awareness and acculturation: promoting and encouraging the use of digital technologies through acculturation events.
  • Digital strategy and development: supporting traditional SMEs and mid-caps in developing a digital strategy for greater competitiveness.
  • Support for R&D projects and testing phases: fostering collaborative projects, while promoting an open innovation approach, through several means such as the launch of open innovation challenges.
  • Support to find investment: helping SMEs and other actors to find the most appropriate funding for their innovative project, whether regional, national or European, public or private.
  • Collaboration and networking: possibility for innovation stakeholders and users to meet with technological and scientific experts (at national and European level) with a view to increasing competences and sharing good practices, skills and technologies.

 

Normandy Living Labs relies on a list of operational infrastructures, distributed throughout Normandy, which can be made available to companies to carry out their activities.

These infrastructures and equipment are made available by TES’ regional partners and members. Some of those are:

  • Software and digital tools for modelling mobility flows, various industrial processes or prototyping connected objects
  • HPC hardware, related software applications + support and training to use them
  • FabLab with residency and all available tools (3D printers, laser cutters, electronics workbench, etc.) as well as dedicated experimentation areas

Historically Labelled Living Labs

 

Since its formation in 2006 ENoLL has labelled 440+ Living Labs. See the full list of Labelled Living Labs who are not active members of the network.
