The idea for transnational living lab collaboration network has been proposed well over decade ago. Despite of a few random studies, theoretical models describing such a network does not yet exist. The aim of this study is to conceptualize a multi-factor maturity model for describing and defining the degree of collaboration maturity among two or more living labs from different countries. The drivers and obstacles for transnational collaboration were identified and Transnational Living Lab Collaboration Maturity Model (TLLCMM) was co-created by living labs from seven different countries including following four-stages: Network, Coordinated network, Cooperation and Collaboration. The suggested TLLCMMconsists the following main factors: “Environment”, “Membership”, “Structure-Process”, “Communication”, “Purpose: Goal-Vision”, and “Resources”. For each factor and sub factor, corresponding maturity levels description were define.
