Living Labs in brief: A living lab is an environment in which research and innovation takes place simultaneously according to the principle of co-creation and participatory design. In a Living Lab you learn to deal with real-life problems with real people in the field.

You leave the classroom and go out to the location where the problem occurs. There you investigate the problem, and co-create the

best workable solutio. It’s where you come up with solutions and new innovative ways of working. The Living Lab is easy to attend, fun

and entertaining – at it is memorable and you learn from other and find solutions you could not have invented on your own.
