Transitioning to a sustainable, just, and stable society is necessary, on an unprecedented scale and speed. In many innovation projects, scientific programs and municipal organizations, (urban) living labs are achieving good results. But are these Labs well understood and well implemented? Are they solving the problems better, cheaper, more sustainable? What are actionable prescriptions?
In this first edition of the Urban Living Lab Summits we take a deep dive into one specific methodology: the AMS Urban Living Lab ‘Way of Working’. We offer an interactive program where presenters show their knowledge while interacting with the audience. The co-creative workshops in the afternoon also shows the development of the Living Lab Marineterrein.
The questions addressed in the Summit are:
- What is a Urban Living Lab?
- How to design a Urban Living Lab?
- How to measure impact of Living Labs?
- How to collaborate within Living Labs?
- How to learn in a Living Lab?
In co-creation we want to increase knowledge and common understanding, refine the challenges and define the outlines of an action agenda.

In this workshop we will learn how to use the city as a living lab. After a tour on the Marineterrein, we will work on an experiment within the framework of Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab. Facilitators: Anikka Fulop (Bureau Marineterrein and Tom van Arman (CITiXL)
- Workshop II: The (Urban) Living Lab Canvas: Build your own Lab
In this workshop we will learn to use the Urban Living Lab Canvas to design our own Living Labs. The Canvas is a strong tool to guide the process of vision, involvement and replication. Facilitators: Michael Bossert (Hochschule fur Technik Stuttgart) and Leendert Verhoef (AMS Institute)
15:45 How to create impact with living Labs?
- Plenary discussion / action agenda setting
City administrators and policy makers, Students, Change makers, Action Researchers, Industry and Living Lab Practitioners.
The set-up of this event will be small scale, with a maximum capacity of 60 people. The focus will be on discussion and interaction among highly engaged experts and building an (international) Living Lab network / community.
