The Institute for Development and Innovation together with partner organizations founded the Pannonia Climate Neutral Agriculture Living Lab (PCNA LL) as an open platform for co-creating innovations in a real-life environment. All with the aim of improving climate-neutral solutions in agriculture, as well as with the ambition to become a regional leader of open innovation. The first step is achieved, PCNA LL became the 3rd member of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) from the Republic of Serbia. ENoLL is the largest and most relevant network of living labs currently in the world.
Open processes and experimental facilities allow PCNA LL members to co-create and directly test innovations in a real-life environment. The Institute for Development and Innovation will contribute to the work of PCNA LL with its expertise in developing and applying the living lab methodology, developing communication strategies, creating and improving business models, conducting socio-economic analyses, and measuring the achieved social impact.
The board of directors of the PCNA LL consists of 4 organizations: Agro Campus, the National Research and Education Center for Innovative Technologies in Agriculture; University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Agriculture; Balkan Eco-Innovation (ABE) and Institute for Development and Innovation. PCNA LL will be formally and officially presented at the next General Assembly of the European Network of Living Labs on September 20, 2023.
