- The Living Lab
Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SME's)
The process of developing an innovative service or product that has market impact is not straightforward, and for SME’s this can be particularly challenging without the right access to resources. The Lab will provide participating SME’s with the opportunity to engage directly with end-users (thus establishing good market contact) and access research outputs without the large costs normally associated with acquiring those resources.
SME’s will be able to strengthen their innovation capacity through their involvement with collaborators from government, the private sector, universities, and the community. Moreover, The Lab will also provide an arena for stakeholders to support existing business relationships with other stakeholders and create an environment in which networking is actively encouraged.
