- about us
As a legal entity, ENoLL international association (ENoLL ivzw) focuses on facilitating knowledge exchange, joint actions and project partnerships amongst its members, promoting Living Labs, enabling their implementation worldwide and influencing policies.
ENoLL participates in projects to help contribute to build ENoLL assets, support joint activities in-between ENoLL members, and to strengthen connections between ENoLL and local, regional and international user communities, governments, policy makers, research institutions, and other relevant organisations and communities.
As a network of innovation networks (ecosystems), with worldwide outreach (aprox. 80% European), ENoLL’s main potential is its network, its partnerships and the expertise developed in managing such a network. ENoLL has very well established dissemination channels (website, twitter, facebook, slideshare, vimeo, etc) with a worldwide outreach and produces a popular monthly newsletter.
ENoLL’s main expertise from a project perspective is in dissemination, event and workshop development, knowledge transfer (replication of the knowledge generated) and training, community building, community management, brokering activities, stakeholder engagement, project capitalisation and support to exploitation. ENoLL has also expertise in establishing new links and connections (in between initiatives, in between initiatives and institutions and in between institutions). ENoLL channels activities performed by its members, organises open calls, challenges, prizes. Additional ENoLL can prodive support to policy papers and preparation of policy workshops. At a lesser scale, ENoLL can act as a single entry point to outreach different cross-cultural communities at European scale.
ENoLL is currently involved in 9 different strategic initiatives/projects (and previously an additional 13 completed projects), contributing with dissemination, event and workshop development, knowledge transfer and training, community building, community management, brokering activities, stakeholder engagement, project capitalization and support for exploitation. ENoLL acts as a neutral and multi-stakeholder platform facilitating strong synergies among different initiatives. Read more about our specific role in projects after the table below.

ECIM facilitates cities & businesses to easily migrate services to the cloud & provides open cloud-based services to innovators.|
|Concluded project||CitySDK creates a toolkit to enable a more efficient utilization of the expertise and know-how of developer communities to be applied in city development. The toolkit comprises of open and interoperable digital service interfaces as well as processes and usability standards.|
|Concluded project||MyNeighbourhood aims at creating a new and ‘smarter’ conception of the ‘Smart City’ that focuses on people and their well being rather than just ICT infrastructures and dashboards. In so doing, MyNeighbourhood uses new technologies and user data to help recreate a lost sense of neighbourhood that is rooted in local place, common ties and personal interaction.|
|Concluded project||The SMARTiP project takes the experience developed by a wide range of existing user-driven, open innovation initiatives in Europe, particularly those developed through Living Labs, and applies this experience to the challenge of transforming public services by empowering ‘smart citizens’ who are able to use and co-produce innovative Internet-enabled services within emerging ‘smart’ cities. The aim is to enable to adoption of open platforms for the co-production of citizen-centric Internet-enabled services in five test-bed sites, Manchester, Gent, Cologne, Bologna and Oulu.|
|Concluded project||The European Platform for Intelligent Cities – EPIC – combines innovation ecosystem processes, fully researched and tested e-Government service applications and new cloud computing technologies to create the first truly scalable and flexible pan-European platform for innovative, user-driven public service delivery, along with a user Road Map. |
|Concluded project||The objective of PERIPHÈRIA is to deploy convergent Future Internet (FI) platforms and services for the promotion of sustainable lifestyles in and across emergent networks of “smart” peripheral cities in Europe, dynamic realities with a specific vocation for green creativity.|
|Smart Cities||Active Project||SynChroniCity represents the first attempt to deliver a Single Digital City Market for Europe by piloting its foundations at scale in reference zones across 8 European cities, involving also other cities globally. It addresses how to incentivise and build trust for companies and citizens to actively participate in finding common co-created IoT solutions for cities that meet citizen needs.|
|FIWARE||Concluded project||CONCORD is the 5-year Coordination Action for facilitating and supporting the FIWARE- FIPPP programme.|
|Active project||CreatiFI is a project introducing FIWARE technologies to very large relevant communities of Creative Industries. CreatiFI aims to attract a large number of developers to participate in developing tools and services for creative communities. This initiative is developing a large amount of FIWARE prototypes and technically mature commercial viable FIWARE tools for the Creative Industries.|
|Concluded project||The FIspace project, which is one of the second-phase FI-PPP projects, aims at developing and validating novel Future-Internet-enabled solutions to address the pressing challenges arising in collaborative business networks, focusing on use cases from the Agri-Food and Transport & Logistics industries.|
|Cross-border, Cross-sector Collaboration |
Internation-alisation of SMEs
|Concluded project||ACE is a project working on delivering targeted cross-border services to highly innovative entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs in the ICT sector in order to accelerate their growth. The ACE programme is supported by cross border finance experts and European innovation support networks EBN and ENOLL.|
|Concluded project||InnoMatNet is a project funded under the NMP (Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies) theme of the EU 7th Framework Programme, with the overall goal of promoting collaboration, knowledge transfer, and the creation of new alliances between materials researchers, designers in industry, and others involved in innovation.|
TALIA (Territorial Appropriation of Leading-edge Innovation Actions) is a horizontal project promoting the coherence and impact of social and creative innovation initiatives in the Interreg MED programme, foreseeing three strands of action:
1. Engagement and support: Liaison and interaction with modular projects and their local and transnational networks, with the purpose of community building as well as helping them to interact with each other and their target audiences.
2. Communication: This includes the web spaces for interaction and dissemination among researchers, practitioners, and policy makers, as well as regular events at the local and national levels.
3. Attaining impact: This involves the identification of opportunities to extend the most prominent results across the MED space and the EU thematic policy agendas.
