What is a Live Lab event?

 

In early 2016, we held the first of our series of Live Lab events in Sheffield to help identify how we can shape a vibrant economy in the UK.

 

The purpose of a Live Lab is to collaborate with public, private and third sector people to address a key topic in a region, and come up with actions to take forward that will generate growth and opportunity for people and business.

 

The events are a hands-on day inspired by Appreciative Inquiry (AI). AI is a strength-based methodology where a regions strengths are built on to ensure continued and upward growth. You can learn more about the AI methodology in this video:
