City as a Live Lab. Testing Ideas for the Future

It has become common practice for city administration to collaborate with universities and tech companies to start "living labs"; these are designated trial areas in the cities where citizens can test out prototype solutions in real time. Those that receive positive ratings will be then implemented on a city-wide scale.

  • How should the process be implemented for searching, selecting and piloting smart tech solutions for the city?
  • How successful are «live labs»?
  • What social and economic effects can we see as the outcome of the labs’ work?
