The ticket sale has started and the summit is still open for contributions! Details for ticketing and the contribution submission form can be found below.

Living Labs are entering a new phase of maturity and they are proving their merit. Previous editions of the summit focused on understanding (2019), tools (2020) and impact (2021) with a growing number of participants. This year we expect 150 or more participants. The participants form an actively medley of global experts: living lab scholars, experienced practitioners, active city officials and ambitious companies. This year’s Summit will work on four leading themes: The Innovation Arena, Scoping and Scaling, Crossing Boundaries and Breaking Barriers.

The program is starting to fill up and is getting into shape. It will be a full day program consisting of presentations, workshops, poster sessions, and lab/project/location visits. For the ULL Summit to succeed, your participation and contributions are vital. We invite you to submit your contributions, through the submission form. It is organized in a hybrid format, so there is the possibility for hybrid, online, and in-person contributions leading to a lively variety of sessions both for online and in-person participants. Contributions can be in form of a presentation (15 min), workshops (1 to 1,5 hour), poster sessions (Full color, A0 or Virtual), and site visits (approx. 1,5 hour). More information can be found in the submission form. Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2022.
