The impact of the organizational set-up of Living Labs on the innovation process: a case study between different living lab approaches in Flanders

Abstract
The Living Lab-concept is strongly emerging in Europe as a new method and approach to facilitate innovation in ICT in which the user plays a central role of input. Today, the European Network of Living Labs assembles more than 270 Living Labs with each a different setup, approach and thematic point of view. In this paper we perform a comparative case study analysis between two recent Living Labs in Flanders, namely the Flemish Living Lab Platform and LeYLab. We situate and evaluate both cases on a theoretic as well as on a more practical level and conclude with a SWOT-analysis. The results reveal that despite facing similar objectives, the implementation of both cases strongly differs. This way, we gain a better insight into the whole structuring of Living Labs as an innovation instrument, whereby some key practices are more difficult to achieve.
