Project Title: Learning from the UK experience of Living Labs

This project involved hosting Dr Rob Wilson, Director of the University of Newcastle's Centre for Knowledge, Innovation, Technology and Enterprise (KITE) in May 2013. The aim of the visit is to bring together the 2013 Massey University Living Lab (MULL) research projects as well as those councils involved in 2012 MULL projects to learn from the experience of the University of Newcastle's KITE connections with local authorities and to foster further scholarship around the Living Lab model of research engagement. Living Labs are a key element of the university's Sustainability Framework the MU Living Lab that developed out of the Challenging Sustainability SIF project. Dr Wilson was invited to participate in an "unconference" - a meeting that departs from traditional conference format. Unconferences were pioneered as part of the Strategic Innovations Fund (SIF) project Challenging Sustainability out of which the MULL was established and participants included the local government and university staff and student researchers.
