Stakeholders

We Proudly Present The Members Of Our Stakeholder Panel!

LibrarIN’s Stakeholder Panel brings together a diverse group of experts who are passionate about innovation in libraries. Bringing a wealth of expertise in innovation and co-creation, particularly in the realms of digital transformation, social entrepreneurship, innovation networks and living labs, our panel reflects the rich diversity found in libraries across Europe. It currently comprises 30 members from 17 European countries, representing national, academic, municipal, and community libraries alongside policymakers, international library organizations, academia, and civil society.

The panel’s overarching goals centre around knowledge exchange with LibrarIN’s researchers,  enriching LibrarIN’s research findings with a pragmatic, practice-led perspective and enhancing the applicability and sustainability of LibrarIN’s policy recommendations. Stakeholders will be involved in co-creation processes around LibrarIN’s research; providing meaningful insights to guide forthcoming research and serving as a valuable sounding board in the formulation of policy recommendations that are not only theoretical but also practical and sustainable.
