LIVING INNOVATION is one of the first industry driven initiatives on Responsible Innovation in Europe.
Major companies, leading researchers and civil society organizations joined forces to explore the diverse business opportunities resulting from Responsible Innovation. Together we co-create responsible solutions in the area of smart homes and smart health and co-develop innovation tools that can be applied in other business sectors as well.
LIVING INNOVATION combines a vibrant online community with a series of on-site workshops and online dialogues. By engaging citizens and lead users we strive to co-create the way we will live in 2030 - combining creativity and business acumen, human-centred design and responsibility.
About the project
LIVING INNOVATION develops responsible, smart solutions that tackle societal challenges and respond to pressing societal trends.
It takes Responsible Innovation on a higher level by exploring the business case of Responsible Innovation and by ensuring real co-creation of sustainable solutions.
Funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Programme, it creates two distinct opportunities.
LIVING INNOVATION gives lead users and citizens the chance to be involved in the design of the technology that will shape their future lives
LIVING INNOVATION gives industry the possibility to respond directly to changes and needs of users and society.
In doing so, the initiative demonstrates to industry and the public what Responsible Innovation is, and how citizens can be involved in developing innovations. By directly engaging a broad diversity of citizens, both industry and society can benefit from responsible innovation. Other industries are encouraged to take up the outcomes and use them to tap co-creation and responsible innovation.
A vibrant virtual community
No company can design our future living alone. Therefore LIV_IN established a virtual community for industry and experts in the areas of smart homes, smart health and responsible innovation. Through continuous interaction and relationship building, the community members mutually develop and share practices, tools, ideas and information.
The LIV_IN Showcase Videos - LIVING INNOVATION developed tangible solutions in the areas of smart health and smart homes that prove that Responsible Innovation pays off. Key success factors are involving a broad and diverse range of people into innovation processes, ensuring a high quality of co-creation, and making use of the innovative power of major companies. The major outcomes are presented in a series of Innovation Showcase Videos
Responsible Innovation Stories - Over a period of three years, the project carried out around 100 video-interviews with leading experts and decision-makers from all around the world. The interviews provide valuable insights into the diverse aspects of Responsible Innovation, how it can be implemented, what challenges arise and how it pays off. See the full list here
