What is a Living Lab?

The Living Lab is an ecosystem of open innovation, based on the development of partnership betweenenterprises, research centres, universities, end-users, and public sector.

The mainpurposeis to promote and substain the activerole of users to the innovation of products and services in economically and sociallystrategicalsectors, with the aim of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

  • Programme: Cross-borderCooperationInterregAlcotraItaly France 2007-2013
  • Project: AlcotraInnovation, durationSeptember 2010 – November 2013
  • Partners: Piedmont, Aosta Valley, Liguria for Italy, Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côtes d’Azur for France
  • Objective: to create and develop a culture of partnership and action among the innovation actors on both sides of the Alpine frontier Italy-France, in order to improve their innovation capacity and ability to compete internationally with better results.
  • Budget: 1,2 million euros for Region Aosta Valley

Vallée Lab

ValléeLab is the Living Lab created in 2012 in Aosta Valley, member of European Network of Living Labssince 24 May 2012

The most important actors of our Living Lab are:

  • Region Aosta Valley, regional public authority, organisation hosting the Living Lab;
  • the other partners of the Alcotra Innovation project: Piedmont and Liguria in Italy, Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in France;
  • innovative enterprises, providing R&D services and prototypes able to be experimented, improved, validated within the Living Lab;
  • universities and research centres, collaborating with the private companies on R&D and experimentation activities, in order to jointly fulfil emerging societal and market needs and requirements;
  • users, such as municipalities, local communities and other public entities, willing to test the prototypes;
  • funder, the EU Interreg Programme, that finances, through the cross-border cooperation project “Alcotra Innovation”, the management of the Living Lab, including the pre-commercial public procurement.

Mission of Vallée Lab

Our Living Lab is expected to offer the following values and services:

  • Facilitator and catalyst for the experimentation by end-users of new products/services developed by innovative enterprises;
  • Early adoption of new products/services fulfilling societal needs, through pre-commercial public procurements issued by the public authority;
  • Living Lab as physical and intangible cross-border milieu of meeting between the different actors of open innovation;
  • Facilitator of matchmaking between needs, expectations and requirements of users, customers, and in general communities, on the one hand, and prototypes and business ideas developed by the entrepreneurial and research system on the other hand;
  • High value-added consultancy and technical assistance.

Development of a strategicrelationshipbetween open innnovation, public policies on innovationand internationalisation and experimentationof eco-innovative products and services.

Region Aosta Valley, as a first adopterof innovative solutions, via public procurementprocedures,plans to procure R&D and prototypationservicesable to deal in an efficient, effective and sustainable way with the economic and social needsidentified from the local community.

Cross border Living Labs for the experimentation of prototypes in real-life conditions.

  • The localcommunities start a dialogue in order to define a set of common, shared, emergingeconomic and social needs(smartenergies, intelligentmobility, sustainable management system…): innovative SMEshave the opportunityto enter in thesenew, challenging and high addedvaluemarkets.
  • In particular, the strategicsectorsselected for the pilotaction on pre-commercial public procurement are the followingones:
  • Smart energies(alternative energysources, energyefficiency);
  • Intelligentmobility(transport and logisticsectors, safety an security monitoring on territory).

Pre-commercial procurement tendering process: research and development services as ruled in Directive 2004/18/EC, pursuant to Article 16 letter f.

Several identified needs for which commercial solutions are not yet available, but at the same time, they are not too far from existing solutions.

Invitation to tender, public, open and transparent, concerning the exploration of possible solutions able to fulfil the needs and requirements above mentioned: the tender for the pre-commercial public procurement within the technological platforms of smart energies and intelligent mobility was issued by Region Aosta Valley on March 2012 and the deadline for the submission of bids was on 22 June 2012.

Global budget of the 2 PCP tendersissued: about 1 millioneuros

Results of the 2 PCP tenders:

  • 4projectsselected for smartenergies (eco-innovative hydrogenstoragesystem, smartmetering on energyconsumption and production from traditional and renewablesources);
  • 3 projectsselected on intelligentmobility (monitoringsystem for safety and traffic control on workingsitesalongroadsand highway, mobile application on smartphones for booking parking integrated with a travel planning system, mobile application on smartphones for bike sharing).

Last October the winning companies of the first tender, issued in March 2012, signed the contracts with the regional public authority Aosta Valley. Since last Novembertheyhaveundertaken R&D and prototypingactivities, nowcoming to the conclusions.Onveachieved the R&D results, since the month of May the tests of the prototypes in real-life settings via the cross-border Living Lab Vallée Lab will be implemented with a duration of 6 months.

Example of cross-border Living Lab: experimentation, testing and validation of innovativesystems for parking, integratedwith an informative platform on local public transport

This Living Labwillsee the presence of end userslocalised in:

  • Cogne, a small village on high mountain, as well as in naturalreserve of Grand Paradis in the territory of ourRegionAostaValley;
  • severalmunicipalities of AulpsValley, in France.

Thankyou for payingattention!
