  • Transversal services
  • Monday 29 April 2024 From 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Open innovation has become a key strategy to boost the growth and competitiveness of companies today. This training session will introduce the use of Living Labs as a practical instrument to make the management of projects and activities in open innovation industrial ecosystems more efficient and meaningful. In this context, Living Labs emerge as a powerful tool for co-designing and experimenting with new innovations from an interdisciplinary and Shared Value perspective, favoring a more favorable environment for the generation of new business opportunities. In this session we will provide clear examples of how Living Labs are appearing in some business clusters as facilitators during the incorporation of advanced technologies in processes of conceptualization and development of new products and solutions by SMEs. Likewise, we will review specific management strategies based on Living Labs that complement the competencies of project managers who are specializing in solving business challenges through collaboration with external entities and the incorporation of technology.
