EXECUTIVE BRIEF

Today's shakeup of the global economy will result in the rapid diffusion of mobile innovations and interdisciplinary personalized services from multiple city-level projects, to produce improved quality of living for citizens, tourists and workers. In this context, the Arab Living Labs is a new multi-project partnership program, founded by Global Leadership Team, to be linked with other Living Lab networks worldwide represented at this workshop, to use advanced mobility and ICT innovations as the catalyst to empower cross-border collaboration, drive transparency, and create new business models. 

This session answers the following questions:

  • Which mobile innovations and Living Labs will empower the development of Future Capitals?
  • Why is interdisciplinary collaboration among Living Labs key to their success?
  • How can city planners prepare to exploit insights and partnerships from Living Labs?
