This morning, Labsitec and e-Brick House have signed an agreement to enter the e'LivingLab Project of the Science, Technology and Business Park of the UJI (espaitec) in order to set up collaboration mechanisms between UJI research projects and Living Lab settings internationally.

As a European Network of LivingLabs (ENoLL) member, espaitec will help UJI groups identify H2020 projects, will analyse successful models to encourage the exchange of good practices, and will collaborate in diffusing various projects undertaken by both groups.
