Offices for Change: Mechanisms of Public Innovation

How are Living Labs and innovation offices transforming bureaucracy from within?

Living Labs and innovation offices and departments are proliferating at every scale of public sector organisations. Living Labs, as defined by ENoLL, are user-centred, open innovation ecosystems based on systematic user co-creation approach, integrating research and innovation processes in real life communities and settings.

In this session we will explore how Living Labs and innovation offices, such as the Office for Civic Imagination of the City of Bologna, are transforming bureaucracy from within.
