Call#4 - Implementation of pilot projects of living labs for decarbonisation and climate change mitigation

This Call aims to promote the development of pilot projects of living labs for decarbonisation and climate change mitigation.

Living labs should be user-centred, enhancing user involvement, co-creation and experimentation, while also allowing the evaluation of concepts, services, as well as tracking and monitoring. In living labs – delimited areas with a local identity recognisable by citizens – multiple stakeholders collaborate in the development, prototyping, validation and testing of new technologies, services and their real-world application.

The projects under this call will contribute to increase resilience to climate change through concrete local climate change adaptation and mitigation measures and low carbon technology solutions in cities.
