The Manifesto for Innovation in Europe used as an effective instrument for discussion at the Open Living Lab Days in Geneva:  People from different institutions and individuals engaged in a fascinating debate. The Manifesto was exposed as a musical piece, in which green marked text appear in the picture as pleasant music (agreed concepts) and red marked text appeared as conflictive sections (disagree, lack of elements, etc.). We invite you to use this result  as a starting point for a further open debate !


“Innovation in the Digital Transformation era provides both profound economic and societal transformations, that cannot be separated. This Manifesto represents an Open co-creation process, Open to all the Citizens, Open to the World, in order to guarantee that none is left behind in this deeply transformative process.”

“The EU citizen is now empowered thanks to the universal open access to knowledge, and new EU infrastructures are needed to facilitate an efficient integration of citizens in the EU knowledge society.”

“It is priority to orchestrate the new EU innovation ecosystems, based on complementary interaction of science, citizens, society and business.”
