We have wide experience from the domains of assistive technologies, independent living, health care technologies, crisis and disaster management, cultural heritage and museum systems. We can help you solve a range of research and development tasks in these and other areas.

We specialize in these fields:

  • Collaboration technologies and information systems: We do research in how computing technology can be used to include stakeholders, to support goal-oriented collaboration, and to support co-creation processes.
  • Human computer interaction and ubiquitous computing: We do research on making technologies easy to use for people with special needs or for people in special work conditions.
  • Artificial intelligence and decision support: We do research on how to use artificial intelligence technology to support decisions based on big data sets.

We apply our research in the following areas:

  • Active assisted living: Supporting elderly and people with special needs to live independently and with dignity is a crucial part of social inclusion.
  • Healthcare: New patterns of chronic diseases require new technologies for supporting healthcare services in our societies where the inclusion of the patients in the services is an important aspect.
  • Cultural Heritage: Technologies for promoting the participation of citizens in storytelling and increasing the value of our cultural heritage.
  • Crisis Management: Technologies that support rescue workers in their everyday tasks.

Our research is international and we regularly publish the results in international conferences and journals. Blog
