The 4th ENoLL Living Lab Summer School will be taking place in Manchester from August 27 – 30, 2013.

About the Summer School

The ENoLL Living Lab Summer School is the biggest yearly Living Lab event combining a mixture of sessions, workshops, lively discussion panels between long-standing ENoLL members & newbies and other Living Lab enthusiasts.

Attendees will be invited to excursions and site-visits in Manchester to see how local innovation can benefit from cross-border collaboration in exchanging ideas, practice and experiences. This and more with the aim of giving you a wider insight in models, theories and technologies related to Living Labs and to gain hands-on experience from the leading experts on the subject.

Moreover, you as a participant will have a possibility to join the Living Lab Speed Dating session and as previous year, a specific day dedicated to Living Lab related research will be arranged.

It is necessary to add to both the theoretical and practical knowledge on Living Labs in order to advance the state-of-the-art of this field.

Within this call for abstracts, ENoLL welcomes both conceptual and empirical papers on topics relating to Living Labs. Extended deadline to submit your abstract is July 10th, 2013.
