Living lab – Secure at home was a VINNOVA funded research project exploring the possibilities with a Living Lab approach. The project primarily focused on methods and tools for user involvement in the innovation process. The context of the Living Lab is ICT services and products aimed at supporting and empowering elderly people.

The overall research question within this project was: In what way does user participation affects the innovation process in a Living Lab approach?

The results from the project were divided into three categories:

1. Evaluation and development of methods for user participation in the innovation process.

2. Establish a long-lasting living lab at Halmstad University. Please visit halmstadlivinglab.se for further information.
