Living Labs offer valuable insights into the practical needs, challenges, experiences, and lessons identified by first-line practitioners. The group dynamic within a Living Lab allows for interaction, discussion, joint analysis, reflection, evaluation, and the development of recommendations. It provides a qualitative understanding of general tendencies in people’s thinking, crucial for in-depth analysis. This methodology involves structured group discussions among relevant experts and practitioners in the field of interest, focusing on managing cases of THB and CSE.
The purpose of this document is to present a methodology for developing three “Living Labs” events within the ERADICATING project.
