Webinar: Living lab approach to governance
Tuesday May 14, 2019, 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join the next interactive ROCK webinar to learn about the best practice city-wide sustainability strategy from Eindhoven.
The living lab in Eindhoven is an approach, a way of thinking and working that emerged in the city of Eindhoven and it is materialized in various places in the city. The municipality of Eindhoven took the initiative to develop various living lab initiatives, in collaboration with actors from other sectors (private sector institutions, public organizations, academic and knowledge institutions and Brainport which is a triple helix collaboration between businesses, government and educational & research institutions).
This resulted in a type of living lab that differs from other labs: it is not a laboratory with a building and it does not have clear hierarchical structure with clear living lab objectives, actors and programmes and projects that are organized and presented in a clear policy document. The living lab is however an entire part of the city’s strategy that is developed, supported and implemented at political and administrative level. It fits in the line of thinking and working in Eindhoven that started decades ago in which technological innovation are linked to and combined with collaborative forms of working, citizen engagement and citizen centred developments.
In this webinar, Lucy Latham, Policy and Cities Programme Lead at Julie’s Bicycle will be joined by guest speakers – details on whom will follow.
This is the third webinar in the ROCK series, part of the EU Horizon 2020 ROCK project.
