SENATOR participated together with its sister projects (LEAD and Ulaads) and of the Thessaloniki Smart Mobility Living Lab in the workshop “Living Labs: enabling and accelerating innovation for on-demand city logistics”. The workshop focused on how to run Living Labs for logistics to accelerate innovation in the sector. It had a mix of more technical partners and the participation of some of the cities involved in the projects and touch upon different dimensions of this topic.
SENATOR defined the main aspects to consider for sustainable on-demand urban planning and how to implement it in Living labs. With the participation of Santiago Muñoz, coordinator of the project from Correos, the project gave details of its multi‐collaborative smart network and the key role of Urban Living Labs stakeholder’s engagement during its definition to provide an integrated solution and new understanding of urban planning. SENATOR will demonstrate its feasibility, effectiveness, sustainability, and suitability in its Urban Living Labs (ULL) located in Zaragoza (Spain) and Dublin (Ireland).
The session provided participants with practical examples of how Living Labs can enable and accelerate innovation for on-demand city logistics. What are the current trends and challenges city logistics are facing? What solutions is each of these projects developing to address these challenges? Why are co-creation approaches so appealing to address challenges brought about by on-demand city logistics? These and other questions were answered.
