Our story

While acting as head of the REAP delegation at MIT, Israel Living Lab’s founder encountered a new approach to smart cities challenges. This approach bypassed the prolonged process that characterized the adoption of new technologies at the municipal level. By providing public and private companies the legal, governmental and technological frameworks they require, the living lab approach makes it possible to accelerate the integration of smart solutions in cities. Israel Living Lab is based on the PPP (private public partnership) living lab concept, which is quickly gaining popularity around the world.
