From their website:

Mobility services should change our cities.

Living Labs Global is a non-profit association based in Copenhagen (Denmark) with the objective to promote innovation in services and mobility in cities.

Mobility is a paradigm shift in which the user, as a citizen, professional or visitor, is expecting public and private services to be tailored to his needs, delivered on demand, anywhere.

At the same time, the global market for innovative services in cities is obscured by a lack of knowledge about other experiences, technologies and business ideas. The great promise of new technologies fails to materialise, as we re-invent the same solutions over and over in each city, repeating the same costly mistakes.

We simply ask “Why have these technologies not changed our day-to-day lives?”.

In 2003, Living Labs Global began as an idea to provide cities with a practical tool for service innovation to address urban challenges in fields such as transport, healthcare, sustainability, social services and tourism.

Since then, Living Labs Global has emerged as an independent, sustainable global initiative receiving strong support from the cities, technology institutes, associations and innovative SMEs that comprise its membership of more than 160 organisations, as well as the European Commission.

Our Showcase collects and presents solutions that make cities more attractive, inclusive, efficient and diverse. Participation is free of charge, providing recognition, visibility and new project opportunities.

Our Research is focused on market developments in mobility, public policy to promote innovation and opening of markets, and emerging business models in a variety of application areas.

Our Summits bring together the different Actors involved in making service innovation happen: City leaders, service professionals, entrepreneurs, researchers and investors come together to exchange experiences, create new opportunities and build a common vision.

Together, we build Your Market for Mobility.
