Living Labs are labeled as territorial context-driven environments, in which user-centered research and development activities are carried out in an open innovation ecosystem rooted in a territorial/urban context (for Territorial Living Lab, see the seminal work by Marsh (2008) and also Concilio and Celino (2012)). Similarly, Urban Living Labs are defined as creative communities of people producing innovation at urban level with the support of a number of methods and tools, which help cocreate value out of the experience of interaction between the citizen/customer and the public/private service provider (Concilio and Molinari 2014).

Svensson et al. (2010) and Molinari (2011) consider a Living Lab to be a methodology, as well as an organization, an environment, and/or a system. Eriksson et al. ” Another G. it © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016 G. Concilio, F. 1007/978-3-319-33024-2_2 21 22 G. eu/): a Living Lab is a methodology for userdriven innovation and the organizations that primarily use it. Boronowsky et al. (2006) see the Living Lab as a setting of shared resources and opportunities focused on finding answers to problems and helping one another to achieve their goals.
