The Living Labs are a great initiative being brought forward to Lebanon and the region under the NEX-LABS project, that intends to establish an open space that brings together scientists, industries, society, and business communities that are NEXUS-driven to collaborate, innovate and co-create the future of the Water, Energy and Food (WEF) -NEXUS sector.

Last month, a summit was held at Berytech Mar Roukoz, gathering 20 stakeholders coming from NGOs, academia, entrepreneurship, and the public sector in the field of WEF-NEXUS to discuss the strategy for developing a sustainable NEX-LABS Living Lab that tackles the challenges faced in Lebanon in the WEF sectors.

A circular conference was held during the launching of the Living Labs, discussing the challenges and opportunities of the WEF Nexus sector, showcasing the current reality, research, innovations, and new trends of the WEF–NEXUS field in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region.

The NEX-LABS project aims to support implementation of clean technologies for sustainable and resilient increase of agri-food sector production based on a more efficient use of energy (renewable/solar solutions) and water (wastewater treatment, water harvesting or reuse solutions) in the Mediterranean region thanks to the contributions of ICT. It includes a partnership of 11 institutions from 7 different countries (Spain, Tunisia, Jordan, Lebanon, Italy, Egypt and Cyprus).
