European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL)

Founded in 2006 under the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, ENoLL is globally active to support and certify Living Labs. The role of living labs in advancing has been formally recognized by the IPCC, the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change, in their 2022 Climate Change Report: Global adoption of living lab methods can drive co-created solutions to existing problems by integrating scientific and expert knowledge with local knowledge and common values. The report has also formally recognized ENoLL’s model of open and citizen-centric innovation for policy-making globally.
