ACSELL seeks to accelerate the uptake of innovation by demonstrating the benefits of demand-driven product and service development through a living lab approach
ACSELL (ACcelerating SME innovative capacities with the Living Lab approach) is a project funded by ERDF and Interreg Europe.
SMEs greatly benefit from ecosystems that enable cross-sectoral collaboration, learning, creation and experimentation. Access to smart and integrated (inter)regional policy instruments throughout the entire process of innovation, a vibrant (value chain) ecosystem and relevant competencies will pave the way towards demand-driven and thus efficient, effective and sustainable solutions.
The ACSELL project aims to:
- Sensitize all parties to the benefits of the living-lab approach
- Identify good practices in our partner regions for improving local innovation policies
- Increase innovation capacities and innovation performance
- Actively promote trans-regional collaboration and learning
