Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The approach that is offered by Living Labs, particularly for their territorialperspective, can represent one of the ways in which to set the transitionfrom the stage of a “free game”, about scenarios and visions, to thedefinition of the plan social demand, specifically within the framework of areal experience of the citizenship life. In this sense, such an approach mayrepresent the guarantee of an effectiveness of the plan.Despite the limits, which the previous failures represent, we can remarkthat through the dimension of openness, roles co-presence and competenceof those stakeholders that are involved in Living Labs, the participationprocesses – from the perspective of a planning – does not end but continuouslytend to a gradual improvement, both of the quality of the projects andof those cohesion factors, which lead to the constitution of spontaneouspartnerships.
