Our LL’s status and plans when it comes to our LL business model and financial sustainability. Currently, the Living Lab 'Antioquia, Departamento del Conocimiento' is in the development of the partnership agreement between the Country of Knowledge Foundation and the Government of Antioquia in the first phase for studies and socialization of 'Antioquia, Department of Knowledge'; the second phase includes the implementation, by implementing an action plan proposed, as a result of studies of the first phase, which is concluded and approved by the Technical Committee with the support of the Scientific Council. Each of the actors is administratively and financially autonomous and they all have financial sustainability (see financial reports and budget plans on websites of the Institutional Network Antioquia).
