Description: This form shows the main information of the “Barcelona the lab” project, made by Citilab (Spain). This project tries to export the living lab model to big cities. To apply it, a new vision was needed: the city as a living lab, the city as a community of communities of innovation. This model incorporated from Citilab its openness to the citizens, but introduce an intermediate layer: the informal communities of innovations. The methodology used in this case consists of an exploring method of the State of the Art, the different innovative communities working in Barcelona, and different innovative initiatives within the City Hall. Moreover, it is also built a scenario and a prototype. User assessment and a final evaluation are also carried out as testing methods.
