APOLLON: Advanced Pilots of Living Labs Operating in Networks)

APOLLON is leveraging current experiences and on-going investments to supplement cross-border pilots with best-of-class methods for setting up, developing and operating sustainable networks of Living Labs.


APOLLON selected four domains in which ICT products and services innovation may benefit most from cross-border Living Lab networking: Homecare, Energy Efficiency, eManufacturing and eParticipation through Social Media.

These will focus on validating the added value of a cross-border Living Lab network, both in terms of SMEs gaining access to new markets, as in terms of achieving collaboration breakthroughs in the development of pan-European domain-specific solutions.
Each experiment focuses on a specific cross-border harmonisation and networking aspect.

LUTIN is partner in the eParticipation through Social Media experiment

This experiment transfers and integrates several locally tested applications into each of the different Living Labs that are active in the network.

By piloting the integration of applications developed by SMEs in all the Living Labs we can test how integrated eMedia technologies can encourage eParticipation and what are the advantages, best practices and limitations of cross-border activities within the network.

The APOLLON domain-specific experiments aim at a number of results that transcend the domain focus and are useful to any cross-border Living Lab network. APOLLON will draft and validate a methodology for setting up and piloting cross-border thematic Living Lab networks. Also, APOLLON aims at creating sustainable, cross-border thematic networks that further explore the added value of connecting different Living Labs into a cross-border network, grouped by a thematic approach.

European Commission


The APOLLON Consortium consists of 28 Core Partners in 10 European member states. It involves Living Labs, SMEs, large ICT companies as well as research partners. Through a close co-operation with the European Network of Living Labs, wide dissemination and involvement of the Living Lab community is ensured.
