Living Laboratory in Climate Change/LiLaCC, a project supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ / Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education, https://www.facebook.com/livinglaboratoryinclimatechange, has recently gathered its partners — (Sweden), Northern (Arctic) Federal University, Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland), ITMO University (Russia), Stellenbosch University (South Africa) and the University of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) — for a joint meeting to discuss the common approach to creating the international educational products and the possible paths for implementing the online course in disruptive technologies for climate change mitigation, which is currently being developed by the project partners.
Experts of Luleå University of Technology have presented the concept of Living Labs, established in the universities as venues for development and dissemination of IT infrastructure-based disruptive technologies. Living Lab is defined as a venue designed to bring together the research centers, innovation-driven businesses, management systems, and related stakeholders to make use of new technologies-related opportunities that can benefit communities and the environment by integrating them with research and innovation.
Over the next three years, and in cooperation with industries, the partners will be applying some of the best practices and solutions in the field of climate change. Their action plan involves also organization of academic mobility and development of innovative solutions for greenhouse gas emissions management.
