Building and starting projects is one, but setting up a solid FieldLab organisation is another thing. Covering the services that were selected as outcome of the vision and the innovation agenda and also maintaining the FieldLab operation requires flexibility for the product development. Different research, monitor or testing questions may require different approaches or project life cycles, which should be taken into account from the early stages of collaboration.
Together with setting up the organisation choices and selections must be made for the accommodation and the facilities. Including monitoring technologies, measuring devices, IT-facilities such as a server etc. Of course the budget and the funding play an important role in this. Setting up and running a FieldLab requires an active, outreaching and never ending attitude to bring together sufficient resources.
