Initial insights into the use of Living Labs in the EU-funded ROBUST project

15 Aug 2018


Multi-actor projects are intended to bring together different stakeholders, such as farmers, advisers, planners, developers, knowledge brokers, public bodies, academia, enterprises and more, who are expected to closely cooperate throughout the whole research project period. The ROBUST project achieves this through the use of Living Labs, a form of experimental governance where diverse actors cooperate in the development and testing of new technologies, products, services, policy instruments, planning tools, organisational forms and governance arrangements, or ways of living. This article presents how the Living Lab concept will be used in ROBUST and gives an overview of which issues the 11 ROBUST Living Labs will address during the project.
