The European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) organizes an 8-week long training course on Living Labs. 

The training program, known as the Virtual Learning Lab 2.0 begins on the 5th of April! The course was designed to guide the participants through key components of Living Labs and equip them with knowledge and tools to successfully run Living Labs in their community.
