4 Takeaways from the Workshop ‘Water-Oriented Living Labs (WOLLs) for the Green and Digital Transition’
On September 21, Water Europe organised the Workshop ‘Water-Oriented Living Labs (WOLLs) for the Green and Digital Transition’ during the Open Living Labs Days, held in Turin on September 20-23.
The workshop intended to highlight in the OLLD 2022, building on the workshop implemented at the OLLD 2019, how the Water-Oriented Living Labs (WOLLs) can generate the ideal multi-contextual, empirical real-world environments and the systemic innovation approach. The most important takeaways from the discussion were:
✅ WOOLs can be an effective instrument to engage citizens in a real-life setting;
✅ Digital Twins can be a successful instrument for scenario planning and the identification of options;
✅ Combining Water-Oriented Living Labs with Digital Twins serve the purpose of establishing Green and Digital Transformation and a Water-Smart Society with engaged citizens;
✅ The Twin approach enhances and facilitates the connectivity between water-oriented living labs throughout Europe.
The projects involved during the Workshop were: Rewaise, ULTIMATE, Water Mining, B-Watersmart, Wider Uptake.
