New Years Resolution


There’s a lot of talk about ‘Living Labs’ these days, but what does that mean exactly? to you, to the community? to the citizens and our city?

Depending on your definition, there are well over 40 “Living Labs” and hundreds of related experiments, tests, pilots and projects taking place now in Amsterdam.

The City Innovation Exchange Lab (CITIXL), the CTO office of Amsterdam and partners are organizing a unique, fun and interactive event to ask some serious questions.  We need to look at where Living Labs are, what role they play and what potential they have to really make a differences to peoples lives.

We want insight into what Living Labs mean to to the city and how we can improve the way we work and communicate to become a more inclusive, more valuable resource and serve as a bridge to bring the city policies, science, business and the citizens needs together.

As a “Living Lab” expert, leader or innovator, we want to hear from you!  We’re inviting the many social, political, business and academic influencers to participate in a pub-quiz format to engage and explore these issues and questions. The results of this event will help us all better understand how we can effectively leverage the value of our city’s Living Labs, making them more accessible and inclusive for more people.
