Test beds and living labs have emerged as a prominent approach to foster innovation across geographical regions and technical domains. They represent an experimental approach to innovation policy that aims at once to test, demonstrate, and advance new sociotechnical arrangements in a model environment under real-world conditions. In this talk, I develop an analytic framework for this distinctive approach to innovation. Our findings suggest that test beds do not simply test a technology under real-world conditions. Rather, they equally “test” society around a new set of technologies and associated modes of governance based on particular visions of the future – occasionally against considerable resistance
