To create a large community of innovation and knowledge on the regional territory thanks to the approach of a Living LAB: this is the challenge taken up by the Region of Umbria and Sviluppumbria with the aim of putting the user community at the centre of their efforts to find innovative solutions to social needs.
Living LABs aim to encourage the creation of open innovation environments, in real life situations, in which the active involvement of end users together with businesses, universities, research centres and public administrations, allows the creation of co-creation paths for new services, products and social infrastructures.
Within the thematic areas identified by the Umbria Region, Sviluppumbria has activated a plan of activities and meetings to involve the community and collect needs and suggestions from citizens and regional stakeholders. At the end of this first phase, the Living LAB model identified for the municipalities of Perugia and Terni will be activated to promote, develop and test new innovative solutions in a real context: where citizens, businesses and the public administration will research and test innovative policies, products, technologies and services together to judge their effectiveness and usefulness for end users and evaluate the effects on the quality of life.
