The objective of the LivingLab is to develop a multi-disciplinary research and testing platform concentrating on the immediate environment from the user point of view. Emphasis is on new models of delivering goods or services made possible by digitalization and demanded by societal change and the increasing integration of services, products and the spatial environment. The LivingLab aims at addressing two questions: What do the users want? How it can be produced? Research activities include developing design-on-demand, mass-customization and co-configuration solutions for generating individual domestic environments. Furthermore, the challenge is to create an operational model of cooperation between companies, government agencies, and universities. The LivingLab is open to participate in an international network of several corresponding laboratories in order to better support the European diversity.
Participation in the “eLivingLab” is open to organizations in the neighboring countries creating an emerging eRegion. The universities network “eBusiness ALADIN” – ALpe ADria INitiative of the Universities of Corvinus Budapest, Hungary; Karl-Franzens Graz, Austria; Košice, Slovakia; Maribor, Slovenia; BW München, Germany; Novi Sad, Serbia & Montenegro; Prague, Czech Republic; Rijeka, Croatia; and Trieste, Italy
We are looking forward to a cooperation contributing to accelerated development of Single European eMarket. Your response is appreciated.
