2. Resources 
Training sessions will be developed & hosted by the Agrotopia living lab coordinator
As Agrotopia has no experience in hackatons/questionnaires other LLs will provide this knowledge

3. Collaboration
Describe multi-actor approach,  actors and protocols with cities and regions: not applicable

4. Risk assessment 
Analyze potential barriers, risk limitations i.e factors that can potentially hinder the completion of each step: coaching sessions, clinics and webinars are on mandatory basis so will potentially not reach all LL facilitators
Add risk elimination and mitigation tasks to the action plan template: involve LLs in determining the needs/content of the training program

5. Plan the continuity beyond project time frame
Daily management of Agrotopia is implemented in Inagro’s research infrastructure and will continue beyond the project timeline. Specific LL projects/trajectories are subject to additional funding (public or private funding). For each potential living lab topic, a project proposal is developed to attempt project funding.
