27 labs examined: successful Living Labs announced

13 November

Many educational institutions nowadays participate in living labs together with the professional field and the government. In these labs, students work on real assignments from the professional field, often under the supervision of a teacher or coach. But how do you set up a living lab and what are the do's and don'ts?
