Library Living Lab at Smart City Expo’16

15th November 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 17th November 2016 @ 8:00 pm

Library Living Lab presenting RRI at the Smart City Expo, Barcelona 2016

“The first living lab located within a Library was the only living lab with its own stand at the Smart city Expo 2016, with a high number of visitors interested in replicating the Library’s model of innovation and citizen participation”

Sant Cugat’s town council presented key projects in their stand at this year’s Smart City Expo, and the Library Living Lab was certainly one of the featured initiatives. With more than 14.000 visitors and over 600 guest cities, this Living Lab had a prominent space in order to promote Responsible Research and Innovation processes with a bottom up approach. Mercè Conesa as Mayor of Sant Cugat Municipallity and President of Barcelona Provincial Council, Joana Barbany as Deputy Mayor and responsible for Innovation in Sant Cugat, Marta Cano as General Manager of the Network of Public Libraries of Barcelona Province, and Tuija Hirvikoski as President of the European Network of Living Labs and Zsuzsanna Bódi as ENoLL Director  were present in the Sant Cugat stand. They all exchanged impressions with Fernando Vilariño and Dimosthenis Karatzas from CVC-UAB, Alberto Valcarce President of Association of neighbours of Volpelleres and Andreu Ares as an representative of the Living Lab users, about their experience in one year of Library Living Lab activity. Sustainability, ecosystem, methodology, policy making, communication and selected activities were part of the debate. Andreu was also showing the amazing task done by the users in the Club 3D, which is developing an autonomous collaborative creation strategy.

The Library Living Lab is a space where new dynamics and protocols of citizen participation to innovation are defined, contextualized in the public library. Here, it is explored how technology transforms the cultural experience of people, and this is done with the participation of all the stakeholders. Furthermore, this space at Sant Cugat is a laboratory of services of the regional libraries network who is interested in replicating the model to other libraries, as well as a real implementation of the quadruple-helix model.

The Library Living Lab was created by a consortium including the Computer Vision Centre, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Sant Cugat Town Council, as well as the Provincial Council of Barcelona and the Association of Neighbours of Volpelleres. The initiative is also part of the European Network of Living Labs who  had an important presence at the Expo with a dedicated stand to outstanding living labs from all around Europe.

At the Smart City Expo, the Library Living Lab presented the activities that have taken place in the last year as well as the different prototypes and technologies that can be found within this space, featuring the 3D club, technology of augmented reality applied to books and revalorization of digitised cultural works. Within the last year, more than 1000 citizens have participated in the Living Lab’s activities, with more than 35 media mentions and 43 scheduled activities.

The Smart City Expo was the perfect place to present this project, as it is completely aligned with the European Commission’s priorities and the H2020 philosophy, granting access to new technologies to citizens and thus contributing actively in creating veritable Smart Cities.

Library Living Lab a l’Smart City Expo’16

15th November 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 17th November 2016 @ 8:00 pm

El Library Living Lab presenta RRI a l’Smart City Expo

“El primer Living Lab a una Biblioteca Pública ha estat l’únic living lab amb stand propi a l’Smart City Expo 2016, amb un alt nombre de visitants interessats en replicar el model d’innovació i participació ciutadana de la biblioteca” 

L’Ajuntament de Sant Cugat ha presentat projectes clau en el seu estand d’aquest any a l’Smart City Expo, i el Library Living Lab va ser sens dubte una de les accions principals. Amb més de 14.000 visitants i més de 600 ciutats convidades, el Living Lab tenia un espai destacat per promoure els processos de recerca i innovació responsables amb un enfocament des d’abaix cap a dalt.

Mercè Conesa com a Alcalde de Sant Cugat  i  President de la Diputació de Barcelona, Joana Barbany com a Tinent d’Alcalde i responsable d’Innovació a Sant Cugat, Marta Cano com a Gerent de la Xarxa de Biblioteques Públiques de la Diputació de Barcelona, Tuija Hirvikoski com a President de la xarxa Europea de Living Labs i Zsuzsanna Bódi com a directora d’ENoLL, estaven presents a l’estand de Sant Cugat. Totes elles van intercanviar impressions amb Fernando Vilariño i Dimosthenis Karatzas de CVC-UAB, Alberto Valcarce President de l’Associació de Veïns de Volpelleres i Andreu Ares com un representant dels usuaris Living Lab, sobre la seva experiència en un any d’activitat Library Living Lab. Sostenibilitat, ecosistemes, metodologia, formulació de polítiques,  comunicació i activitats seleccionades van ser part del debat. Andreu també va mostrar  la increïble tasca realitzada pels usuaris del  Club 3D, que està desenvolupant una estratègia de creació col·laborativa autònoma

El Library Living Lab és un espai en el qual es defineixen noves dinàmiques i protocols de participació ciutadana per a la innovació, contextualitzada a la biblioteca pública. S’explora com la tecnologia transforma l’experiència cultural de les persones, i això es fa amb la participació de totes les parts interessades. A més, aquest espai a Sant Cugat és un laboratori de serveis de la xarxa de biblioteques de la regió, que està interessada en replicar el model a altres biblioteques, i es tracta d’una aplicació real del model de quàdruple hèlix.

El Library Living Lab va ser creat per un consorci que inclou el Centre de Visió per Computador, de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona i l’Ajuntament de Sant Cugat, així com la Diputació de Barcelona i l’Associació de Veïns de Volpelleres. La iniciativa també forma part de la Xarxa Europea de Living Labs, que  va tenir una important presència a l’Expo amb un stand que va aplegar un nombre significatiu d’iniciatives living lab.

A l’Smart City Expo, el Library Living Lab va presentar les activitats que han tingut lloc en l’últim any, així com els diferents prototips i tecnologies que es poden trobar dins d’aquest espai, que ofereix, entre d’altres coses: el club 3D,  tecnologia de la realitat augmentada aplicada als llibres, revaloració de les obres culturals digitalitzats, etc. En l’últim any, més de 1.000 ciutadans han participat en les activitats del Living Lab, amb més de 35 aparicions en mitjans i 43 mencions activitats programades.

The Smart City Expo era el lloc perfecte per presentar aquest projecte, ja que està completament alineat amb les prioritats de la Comissió Europea i la filosofia H2020, la concessió d’accés a les noves tecnologies als ciutadans, i per tant amb la contribució activa en la creació de veritables ciutats intel·ligents.
