Position Paper: Innovation Infrastructures 4.0
In order to support networking, advancement and sustainability within the research and innovation infrastructure in Germany 13 leading living labs in Germany have initiated a position paper in context of the INNOLAB project. Based on the complexity of societal changes and innovation processes this position paper urges policy makers for action in the innovation and research system.
The position paper demonstrates the potential of living labs to improve Germany´s innovation capacity and illustrates relevant topics for innovators for example: How to drive innovations in consumer behaviour towards sustainability? What are success factors to harness the innovation potential of digitalisation?
The position paper is available here (pdf, 788 KB).
The main demands for action of the position paper are the following (see page 2):
