Living Innovation Lab – Closing the Gap


VIRTUAL VEHICLE funds SMEs, Startups and Enterprises to experiment and innovate with new technologies.

The LIVING INNOVATION LAB facilitates the transfer of knowledge – from academia to industry and the development of highly innovative product solutions. Together with academic and industrial partners, VIRTUAL VEHICLE is trying to bridge “The Chasm” between investigating innovative concepts and early technology adopters by funded open call experiments.

Successful demonstrations of highly innovative technologies lead to a maximum benefit in exploitation and realistic chances for market uptake. For this reason, the LIVING INNOVATION LAB initiates open calls for experiment proposals to expand and strengthen the transfer of technical capabilities and making innovative solutions, platforms and data available for experimentation.

With our technical areas and research competences in combination with the overall research program and the K2 funding scheme, the LIVING INNOVATION LAB offers an outstanding opportunity to experiment with highly innovative technologies.
