Among the twelve Living Labs, nine of them already existed, wholly or partly, acting as Living Labs before their affiliation to ENoLL, and three of them were projects created with ENoLL’s approval. Motivational factors for applying for ENoLL made it possible for these Living Labs to get access to knowledge and international resources. Brazilian Living Labs are more  oriented to social innovation than to business innovation. However, in what refers to their activities and results, there is a balance between technological and social innovation. The main challenges faced by them, according to their coordinators, are the lack of specific resources for this type of initiative and the isolation in relation to other Living Labs. The fact that nine of them already existed before ENoLL’s affiliation leads to deduce the existence of other initiatives that are already underway. Identifying those initiatives and disseminating the concept and methodology of Living Labs throughout the country might be an important strategy to overcome the challenges targeted
