Open Innovation for the Future Internet
Tuesday 14 December 2010, Ghent (Belgium)
With the Living Labs and Smart Cities: Open innovation for the Future Internet-conference, we want to reflect on ‘Smart Cities’ as centres for user-driven open innovation, using Future Internet technology in a user-friendly way to enable a truly knowledge-based society. New, State-of-the-Art technologies can be used in developing new public services in domains such as health, mobility, environmental monitoring or energy management. Through the usage of Living Lab-methodologies in the City, succesfull concepts can be identified, and user co-creation can enhance the innovation process, resulting in succesfull and sustainable services.
