The aim of the third lesson of Living Lab e-course is to give better insights on how to set up and run a field test in a Living Lab setting. Besides providing a theoretical understanding into the topic, this lesson proposes some practical guidelines that would facilitate prolonged user engagement in Living Lab field tests. It also discusses some ethical considerations regarding involvement of participants within Living Lab field tests. As testing digital innovations and technologies (such as IoT deployments) are one of the key aspects of Living Lab activities, this lesson can guide large-scale pilot projects to better understand what they should do and how they should act in order to test and evaluate their specific IoT technologies in a Living Lab setting. This study has been designed and developed based on the results of an extensive literature study on the topic as well as the collective experiences of several Living Lab experts.
