Getting Collaborative Networks Sustainable: Drivers and Barriers Within a Digital Laboratories Network

Abstract : Rapid technology changesand the transition todigitalisedproduction and educationpose significant challenges toengineeringeducation. Hands-onexperimentation requiresaccess to new technologies, often in a labsetting. Cross-organisationalcollaboration and resource sharing can reduce costs and increase utilisation. Success depends on trust, practicalresourcemanagement, smooth service delivery,and performance. This paper presentsan initial evaluation of a resourcemanagement approach using an online labbooking process,considering stakeholders'various roles and needs. In addition, we gathered external inputsthrough twosurveys targeting industry and students as potential customersandinterviews with professionals working in collaborative working environments to assess drivers and barriers to network success using SCORmetrics. These findings are essentialinputs for lower-level design decisions, such as designingtheunderlying business models, the relationship betweeneducation and research for the labs, the rules of use, and how to motivate collaborators.
