The third meeting of the Local Living Lab of León (LLLL) was held on 27 July 2023. The total number of participants was 26 people, representing 15 different entities from the four sectors of the quadruple helix model: administration, academia, business/companies and citizenship.
The intention of this third Living Lab was to compile everything that is happening now in the city of León since, after the pandemic and thanks to the Next Generation funds, many projects are being implemented and launched. To this end, two round tables were held, where each entity explained what projects are being carried out or are about to be implemented, what actions related to the energy transition are already a reality. The format of the round tables, one on mobility and the other on energy and the city, allowed for question-and-answer sessions and small debates to clarify the points of conflict and existing problems, as well as the benefits and changes that are taking place.
