Introduction Many research projects over the years, have ended in a report on a bookshelf. Why? Market was not ready Results from the project were never validated under real-life conditions. More often than not the project did NOT start from the very needs and preconditions of the intended user.

Many research projects over the years, have ended in a report on a bookshelf.

Why?

Market was not ready

Results from the project were never validated under real-life conditions.

More often than not the project did NOT start from the very needs and preconditions of the intended user.

Implementation of a Living Lab In EU IST FP5 – OPIUM (2002 – 2004) The goal of the project was to support the accelerated rollout of commercial mobile services within Europe addressing interoperability, roaming and billing prior to the delivery of commercial services. OPIUM consisted of five trial sites in five countries (Portugal, Germany, Spain, UK and China).

Implementation of a Living Lab In EU IST FP6 – Daidalos (2004 – 2008) Daidalos' vision is a world in which a mobile user can use a diverse range of personalised services - seamlessly supported by underlying technologies at all system levels and from heterogeneous access methods and networks to service platforms. The Official Test Sites were selected from a list of candidates within Daidalos partners considering a number of requirements (such as UMTS/WLAN coverage, transport facilities, availability of specific equipment, broadcast availability, logistics for demonstrations/workshops and expertise from former projects, among others) to decide which sites were more suitable for the chosen scenarios: automotive and university. The three Daidalos Official Sites are in place at Stuttgart (Germany), Aveiro (Portugal) and Sophia-Antipolis (France).
