Highlight of LL objectives and profile/domain :  Imaginove decided to create a living lab in Rhone-Alpes/Lyon to help our members (about 120 SMEs, labs and schools) to take concern of the demand-driven approach. Our first concern is how become more efficient in our future collaborative R&D program by filling the gap between technologies and market needs. We strongly believe that a living lab, as a user-centric focus, is the key point for the surviving of our European image industries.  

Description

Mission/Offer, capabilities and qualities The image industry, video games or animation or film, need direct contact with the public to measure how the public receives their products. The production of much products of image industry is made for the public. And it is important for firms to test what they are doing before launching. Our project to create our living lab is driven by our mission to build excellent R&D programs because they are connected with the users/demand. If Imaginove labs will be connected to its local consumers we clearly want to connect with other foreign living labs in order to benefit of their experiences but, more, to purpose to our members to test their concepts/services directly on an international fields.
