Kostas Test 2

This is a test Innovation report

Danube Living Labs Pilot application Potelu Living Lab Romania

While at the Danube basin scale strategies create a sustainable framework for action, acknowledging and managing water related risks at local level is generally a major challenge. Our solution aims to test collaborative models centered on communities to support strengthening their capacity to assess risks, identify the most appropriate solutions to mitigate and implement them as well as manage these solutions on long term within local and regional contexts.

Developed by BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT GROUP

Along the Danube and in the Danube Delta using nature based solutions for floods and drought management is a set objective of ICPDR and national management plans but at the same time, for many years, an open subject for debate as regards practical implementation.

TRL4. Laboratory testing of prototype component or process
Technology validated in lab. Basic technological components are integrated to establish that they will work together. This is relatively “low fidelity” compared with the eventual system. Examples include integration of “ad hoc” hardware in the laboratory. While the Living Lab concept is applied at international level in many sectors, their role in facilitating innovation in the water sector needs more practical exercise especially at small scale tackling water challenges at the “grass roots”. The current initiative aims to provide evidence and guidance to support water related living labs initiatives making a step forward from TRL 7 towards TRL 9.

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The Potelu Living Lab is focused on the idea to put the local community in the driver seat for increased capacity to transform local challenges into opportunities. Specifically this involves to partner between different stakeholders for developing local capacity to identify and manage solutions to mitigate climate extreme events and increase resilience of population, environment and economic activities and at the same time to design and implement those solutions that also directly impact on local development and restore the attractiveness of the region for different population categories. The combination of water related risk mitigation actions which also build on economic opportunities will be at the core of the Potelu Living Lab approach.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

The project will assess also the aspects that could stimulate or hinder the application of the Living Lab concept in the water sector

The initiative is developed in partnership with WWF Romania (www.wwf.ro) and builds upon on the existing experience of WWF project Lower Danube River Corridor – Floodplain Restoration Opportunity Analysis and BDG activities within Horizon 2020 project NAIAD
