Llvlng Labs are physlcal or vlrLual reallLles where sLakeholders form publlc-prlvaLe-people parLnershlps
(4s) of flrms, publlc agencles, unlverslLles, lnsLlLuLes, and users. All are collaboraLlng for creaLlng,

conLexLs. 1wo maln dlfferences separaLe Llvlng Labs from oLher forms of user ConLrlbuLed lnnovaLlon.
llrsL, Lhe lnslsLence on real-llfe envlronmenLs allowlng new meanlngs, behavlors and problems Lo
emerge. Secondly, ln llvlng labs Lhe users are Lhe ones LhaL shape Lhe lnnovaLlon ln Lhelr own real-llfe
envlronmenLs, whereas ln LradlLlonal lnnovaLlon neLworks Lhe lnslghLs of users are capLured and
lnLerpreLed by experLs. Slmllar Lo oLher forms of open lnnovaLlon, llvlng labs are dynamlc, buL Lhey are
