Na de succesvolle edities van de afgelopen twee jaar, heeft ENoLL opnieuw de competitie voor beste Living Lab Project geopend. Alle ENoLL-leden zijn uitgenodigd om deel te nemen en een of meerdere projecten in te dienen waaraan ze in 2018 hebben gewerkt. Als gevolg daarvan zijn er 14 projecten genomineerd waaraan ENOLL-leden uit verschillende landen vorig jaar hebben gewerkt.
CrossCare is, net als vorig jaar, één van de genomineerde projecten en maakt kans om te winnen.
Er kan tot zondag 31 maart 2019 worden gestemd. De drie winnaars van dit jaar krijgen de kans om deel te nemen aan de OpenLivingLab Days 2019 (3 to 5 September 2019 in Griekenland).
