EMM Living Lab
Innovating the partnership between the cultural heritage sector and the tech community
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

The Estonian Maritime Museum’s Living Lab will test the idea, that the cultural heritage sector is ready to partner up with the tech community in an innovative way
In EMM's Living Lab, we are exploring the potential of cultural heritage institutions as strong and capable partners for the tech community in Estonia. However, we have observed that the tech community has not traditionally viewed cultural heritage institutions as viable partners in the development of new services and solutions. By bridging the gap between institutions that have traditionally played the role of buyers (CHIs) and providers (the tech community), we aim to unlock the untapped resources and expertise of the cultural heritage sector. Our goal is to foster a collaborative environment where cultural institutions and the tech community can co-create innovative solutions and establish a more equal partnership in the development process.
