Living Lab tools presented at the Hannover Messe 2013

The InnoMatNet project focusing on networking of materials laboratories and innovation actors in various industrial sectors for product and process innovation, funded by the FP7 of the European Commission) workshop took place on April 11th in conjunction with the Hannover Messe 2013.

ENoLL and ENoLL members were invited to attend the event in order to showcase some tools and best practice examples coming from the ENoLL Living Lab community:

 

  • ENoLL Living Lab Knowledge Center
  • Living Lab Methodology Handbook (Botnia Living Lab)
  • CoCo Toolkit (Service Design Unit, Laurea Living Labs, Laurea University of Applied Sciences)

 

The proceedings will be made available soon.

 

InnoMatNet

InnoMatNet aims to advance the goal of an innovation society by developing a flexible approach that establishes teams of innovators, which link materials labs with industry (particularly the creative industry), as well as other innovation actors, providing support to help them bring new products and processes to market. The project will identify the key stakeholders in the area of materials research in Europe, the gap between their needs and the existing offer of initiatives and tools that support their product or process innovation. Best practice case studies of collaboration between materials researchers and industrial entrepreneurs will be developed, aiming at identifying best-performing business models to bring “communities” together.

Latest InnoMatNet newsletter here.

A database of key stakeholders in the areas of materials and design in Europe is being built by InnoMatNet. This database is only available to registered users. You can join the database here.

Do you have examples of best practice, case studies or other ideas that could help speed up the design and commercialisation of innovative products and processes, which exploit the potential of new materials and new materials technologies? See for more case studies here.

 

Would you like to be involved in business networking events in this field, access the latest in best practices and influence future EU research programme thinking? If so, InnoMatNet wants to hear your views through completion of this questionnaire.

 

 

Upcoming InnoMatNet workshops & events

 

InnoMatNet Summer School on materials and design innovation will be held in London during the New Designers – Part Two event, in an exciting collaboration with the UK’s most important graduate design exhibition. The InnoMatNet Summer School will inspire young designers and researchers about the possibilities of materials, both old and new. It starts at the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in central London on 4 July 2013 before moving to New Designers at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London on Friday 5th July. This event will include high-profile materials and design presentations within the New Designers Talks Programme, in addition to hands-on workshop activities for the Summer School participants.
