[Innovative City] Involving Citizens as Researchers, Co-creators and Testers of the Smart City | L’Atelier: Disruptive innovation

Speaking at the 5 Plus City Forum in March, Carlos Moreno, scientific advisor to the president of GDF Suez Group subsidiary Cofely Ineo, underlined the importance of the ‘citizen-centric’ approach, which consists of designing services to suit citizen needs. Might it not be easier though just to give ordinary citizens the tools with which to invent the city of tomorrow? An example of this approach is the Experiential Living Lab for the Internet of Things (ELLIOT) project. Its aim is to develop an Internet of Things (IOT) ‘experiential platform’ where users/citizens are directly involved in co-creating, exploring and experimenting with new ideas, concepts and technological artefacts related to IOT applications and services, in different situations in the home, at work and so on. As part of the European project, which is scheduled to run for thirty months, the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA) and Paris-based think tank Fing brought together 35 people, plus an interdisciplinary group of experts, to work on a mechanism for collecting data relating to the environment and mobility
