The CFR was initially created with the objective of bringing digital literacy to the Andalusia region. But quickly, and thanks to the fast deployment and installation of the CFR rural and urban labs, CFR has realised the importance of working with and for the citizens. In order to do this, we have implemented specific methodologies to identify people needs. Since its evolution, CFR has been growing quickly and nowadays CFRLL is promoting sustainability and undertaking more initiatives. Consorcio Fernando de los Ríos Living Lab is a perfect ecosystem for Living Labs and open innovation. CFRLL is composed by Rural Labs and Urban Labs (more than 840 in total – and more than 750 000 users) where citizens are actively contributing.
CFR has put in place a strategic plan including the following main areas of action:
- Citizen participation
- Integration and inclusion
- Entrepreneurship and employment
- Internationalisation of the rural and urban lab through adhesion to ENoLL
