Research project, ECAL 2016


The Senior Living Lab is a laboratory dedicated to the quality of life and welfare of seniors and their caregivers. Its aim is to involve seniors in their life context to the creation and development of new products, services and practices with high added value. It brings together professionals in the fields of health, design, engineering and management and is open to associations, companies, researchers, students and more generally to anyone interested by this topic.

Over a period of 2 years, the project aimed to :
- Build bridges with the different actors of the community, associations and politics.
- Establish co-creation activities by achieving three concrete projects in the areas of mobility, food and communication.
- Create stakeholders’ community that will support, if possible in a sustainable manner, the development of the SLL activities.
