Living Labs

Would you like to test a technology, a product or a service in a real user context - not just in a user test lab or by a few test users? 

BrainsBusiness Living Labs gives you the chance - here, we facilitate extensive testing and combination of for instance Smart City technologies in real-life user contexts at different locations in Denmark.

We currently run the following Living Labs:

Aalborg's first Smart City/IoT Living Lab in the Gigantium sports and event arena, where an IoT network consisting of 33 sensor boxes gather data, including temperature, humidity, motion and noise levels.

In addition, we are currently working on forming another Living Lab in the unique new Cloud City location in Aalborg. 

Our services include:

  • The establishment of project consortia focused on Living Labs
  • Facilitating companies' participation in living labs with the purpose of testing technologies and services
  • Facilitating the project process towards the launch of living labs
  • Matchmaking where we bring together relevant researchers and companies with a focus on ideas that may lead to the formation of living labs
  • Identification of locations and contexts that can be used as living labs as well as the initial dialogue on this with the owners etc.

I am both very happy and proud that we have gotten a smart city living lab based on the Internet of Things here in Aalborg.

It is amazing that we can be world-leading within this field as well, and I have no doubt that this is due to the close collaboration between our local companies, the municipality of Aalborg and Aalborg University.

Thomas Kastrup-Larsen, Mayor of Aalborg
