Livret du participant au Colloque "Living Lab: Bénéfices dʼune approche portée par les usagers pour les entreprises et les collectivités"

Abstract : This symposium, organised on 22 November 2016 in St Etienne by the Cité du design, France Living Labs and INRIA, is part of the Entretiens Jacques Cartier 2016 and Meetings 2016 "Francophonie Living Labs" (Lyon 21/11 and St Etienne 22-23/11) and receives funding from the "Francophone Living Labs" project, the Commission Permanente de Coopération France - Québec (CPCFQ 65th edition) of BEDA (Bureau of European Design Associations) and ENoLL, European Network of Living Labs. The Living Lab model is a "user led" open innovation approach which is growing increasingly popular world-wide. While it differs initially because of the active participation of users early on in the innovation process and experimentation in realistic conditions, it also puts the emphasis on creating an innovation ecosystem based on a public-private-people partnership in the case of social projects and on developing intermediation processes to reconcile the conflicting interests of all those involved. Living Labs also provide a new approach to governance and project management. But the concept of the ecosystem is central here, since creating a real momentum for dialogue between stakeholders in the form of collaborative processes, combining professional knowledge, activism and practical knowledge to encourage the emergence of both technological and social innovation is at the heart of the process. This one day symposium will explore the benefits of "Living Labs" type innovation based initiatives for the various players - researchers, businesses and communities to get a better understanding of today's social issues. There will be dialogues between Francophone Living Labs from different walks of life (mainly from Quebec and France), businesses/professionals from different industrial sectors, communities and associations representing civil society. A hybrid concept combining guest speakers, posters, panels, workshops is proposed to maximise the quality of the dialogue between the participants and sharing between participants based on a great many concrete experiences.
