ENoLL Summer School was organized in October for the fourth time. The event attracted 150 participants to Manchester, England, from all over the world to discuss smart and creative cities.

In this year’s summer school, the network grew by 25 new members. Among them, there were also several organizations from outside of Europe. The rapid growth of the network emphasizes the status of living labs in the field of innovation development. 
 
The European Network of Living Labs is a network founded in 2006. It gathers the innovation communities of different countries under one roof. Already 345 living labs from around the world are involved. 
 
Forum Virium Helsinki is one of the founding members of the network. Managing Director Jarmo Eskelinen is the president and chairman of the association.
