Living Lab and Quartier Numérique: Historical background
Quartier Numérique Living Lab was created in 2006 by Silicon Sentier, a Paris-based non-profit organisation gathering more than 150 enterprises (start-ups, SMEs) working in ICT innovation in the Ile de France Region. In 2007, Quartier Numérique became the first ENOLL Living Lab in the Paris Region. The goal of Quartier Numérique was to serve as a testbed for mobile internet services in a Paris area covered by Wi-Fi infrastructure. Between 2007 and 2009 44 projects were tested at Quartier Numérique.
