Work Package 1

Network of FOOD2030 Living Labs


WP 1, which is led by Oslo Metropolitan University, will provide a roadmap for the development of tailormade (context-specific) Living Labs in the 12 cities that are part of FUSILLI project. This involves formulating guidelines for identification and involvement of local food system stakeholders, defining basic management principles and identifying demonstration sites for new policies and actions based on principles of responsible innovation. The purpose of the FUSILLI Living Labs is to promote innovative actions through all stages of the food chain – production, processing, distribution, logistics, consumption, as well as governance. Subsequently, the Living Labs will involve a wide set of stakeholders, including public authorities (municipalities), agro-food industry partners (SMEs or sector associations), organisations representing producers and consumers, cooperatives, food sovereignty associations, social movements involved in urban food transitions, NGO’s, education and science-technology institutions, individual consumers and non-human stakeholders.


WP 1 includes – but is not limited to – the following tasks and subtasks:
Establishing a methodology to create Living Labs, based on an inventory report from existing Living Labs in the 12 cities, developing:

  • guidelines for the identification and involvement of city food system actors for the optimal expansion of the FUSILLI Living Lab network,
  • guidelines for governance and management of the Living Labs. This task includes a governance strategy handbook to enable the partners to clearly define the management, communication and information flow of the Living Labs,
  • a manual for “Responsible Innovation Self-Assessment” (RISA), including principles for identification and evaluation of ethical and public concerns in the Living Labs,
  • a public report on Living Lab Self-Assessments,
  • Living Lab road maps from each of the 12 cities, summarising their major steps and milestones,
  • an operational roadmap of the network of the Living Labs, including a description of the directions, targets and operational working structure of the European network of Living Labs (ENoLL),
  • a summary of results from the network of FOOD 2030 Living Labs events,
  • an evaluation framework for the actions implemented.
