End of the Year reflections
We looked back at the challenging yet productive year of 2020 in our winter newsletter and pick out some of the highlights which have marked the year. Chairperson Fernando Vilariño addressed the highlights in his speech.

2020 Odyssey by Zsuzsanna Bódi
Lots of work, but no pictures to illustrate.
Difficult to express this year’s rollercoaster,
Shall we try to turn it into a rhyming little poster?
The mission of the year end General Assembly meeting:
To keep everyone engaged and awake on the year’s 100+1 online gathering.
The year’s achievements and figures were turned into a quiz to our community,
Who were the lucky players winning the lottery?
2020 was the first attempt for a Digital Living Lab Days,
Can you think of any other ways,
Where you could have learned what users can do for you:
Bring something special to your innovation stew?
Welcoming new members, building their capacity,
For our Living Lab community lifelong learning is a key.
We hope our Virtual Learning Lab students were happy with this year’s courses,
Surely they have heard once or twice: You are muted!
The Action oriented task forces worked on forging new content,
Which resulted in a busy year in proposal development.
We are proud to get eight new projects funded,
Can you guess which were 2019’s favorite projects selected?
ENoLL has now reached the teenager age
This kid as well would like to get out of its 2020 cage.
Hopefully the upcoming year will get more eventful,
When the refreshed bylaws will guide the network to adulthood.
After the An(n)as and (Z)suz(s)annas said goodbye,
Who will be the new one at ENoLL bossing around?
Update your CV and polish your motivation letter,
Rest assured, we will guide your first steps.
Following this short poem, some more reading for today,
I leave you with my best wishes for the holidays.
I wish you a prosperous, healthy and peaceful new year,
And whispering the 2020 Living Lab message to your ear:
If you want to innovate, Get your users on board and let them co-create!
Thank you for supporting my work along the years,
I am leaving this position with happy tears.
