The Barcelona ”la Caixa” Living Lab is an initiative promoted by the Barcelona City Council and the ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, in collaboration with the IrsiCaixa Living Lab for Health and ISGlobal, with the aim of strengthening the Barcelona Science Plan.
The project builds on the experiences of the IrsiCaixa Living Lab for Health and ISGlobal, which include a wide range of initiatives aimed at promoting research and open innovation in health. The Barcelona ”la Caixa” Living Lab serves as a meeting point for a variety of social actors and a venue for expressing and addressing the needs of the community. The platform hosts initiatives seeking public participation in the co-design and implementation of research and innovation agendas.
The general objective is to facilitate a structure of intermediation where experts from different scientific disciplines and stakeholders from various parts of the system—including the general public—can meet to collaborate and optimise R&D&I processes, interventions and the development of public policies to achieve transformative change in the system to make it more open and inclusive, thereby enhancing its social impact.
