    Abstract

    Living Lab is an emerging user-driven open innovation approach. Although innovation adoption has been an active research area for quite a long time, it seems that little empirical studies have been done on the Living Lab innovation adoption research. In this paper, we present empirical results from a study of Living Lab ageing care innovations adoption in Chinese healthcare industry. Our empirical findings from analyses of a survey data suggest that partners' readiness and government support are two major determinant of adoption. Security, cost and usefulness were also found to have a strong effect on the adoption intention. Given the rapid development of Living Lab innovations in healthcare areas, our findings have both practical implications to Living Lab innovations practitioners and theoretical implications to innovation adoption.
