Humanness to technology
The Living Lab COLABORAR was created to connect technology researchers to users. We do so by applying Human-Centred Design techniques, such as interviews, observations, focus groups, usability tests and ideation workshops. We also conduct human activity data collection and technology assessment.
Since 2011, the Living Lab has served over 70 projects and has promoted over 2500 research activities which have led to technological innovation.
Our areas of application are diverse: well-being, health, security, agriculture, retail, energy, quality of life in old age and technology for communities.
