In this conceptual paper, we propose a methodological approach to integrate the living labs concept and experiences from the rural-urban partnerships to develop a strategy for Smart Rural-Urban Relations using living labs. We consider Apulia Region – in South Italy - our study example as an innovation gap between separates urban areas and the surrounding rural areas can be highlighted; so the paper states that the living labs concept allows strengthening and organizing rural-urban partnerships through the involvement of local actors and the use of ICT solutions. Results show fostering cooperation among different actors -thus including rural actors and the LAGs-, involving the creative industries, and developing a strategy based on the energy, transport and ICT sectors is the key components for a successful strategy for Smart Rural-Urban Relations using the living labs concept.
