COLL - Collaboration of Living Labs
A Living Labs Network for User-driven Innovation of ICT Services (COLL).
A Living Labs Network for User-driven Innovation of ICT Services (COLL) is a project funded by Nordforsk with partners in Karlstad, Aalborg and Stavanger. The aim of the project is to build on and improve the work of existing Living Labs and generate knowledge on how to innovate new services, media and infrastructure in Living Labs in three different Nordic countries. Value is co-created with customers or users and assessed in the context of its intended use, making Living Labs a valuable tool for service development. Companies that aim to develop innovative products or services should place a stronger emphasis on understanding the users’ value creation processes, resource constellations available for users and the relationship between the quality of the technical solutions and user perceived quality. In the project, researchers from disciplines such as computer science, psychology, marketing, e-health, media and communications, and electrical engineering collaborate.
The project is funded by Nordforsk with partners in Karlstad, Aalborg and Stavanger.
