For the upcoming WeMakeThe.City Festival, Paul will be on stage for the Urban Living Lab Summit – A Deep Dive into the AMS Urban Living Lab Way of Working panel group discussion. How to learn in a Living Lab? He will be discussing how CITIXL uses Living labs to exchange innovations and showcase some test we’ve done in Amsterdam, Taipei, Daegu and Boston. Register here:
Transitioning to a sustainable, just, and stable society is necessary, on an unprecedented scale and speed. In many innovation projects, scientific programs and municipal organizations, (urban) living labs are achieving good results. But are these Labs well understood and well implemented? Are they solving the problems better, cheaper, more sustainable? What are actionable prescriptions?
In this first edition of the Urban Living Lab Summits we take a deep dive into one specific methodology: the AMS Urban Living Lab ‘Way of Working’. We offer an interactive program where presenters show their knowledge while interacting with the audience. The co-creative workshops in the afternoon also shows the development of the Living Lab Marineterrein.
The questions addressed in the Summit are:
- What is a Urban Living Lab?
- How to design a Urban Living Lab?
- How to measure impact of Living Labs?
- How to collaborate within Living Labs?
- How to learn in a Living Lab?
In co-creation we want to increase knowledge and common understanding, refine the challenges and define the outlines of an action agenda.
