This three year project starts January 1st 2013 and is financed by the KK Foundation with SEK 5.25 million. Newspaper partners are: Aftonbladet, Expressen, Göteborgs‐Posten, Helsingborgs Dagblad, Mediabolaget Västkusten AB, MittMedia and Västerbottens-Kuriren.
The project addresses the following research questions:
How does changing media experiences/habits influence media house ecosystems?
What are the frames and building blocks that are adaptable to business modeling for digital new(s) media, and how can new business models be designed?
The overall goal of this project is to generate a comprehensive view of the changing news media ecosystem to prepare the newspaper partners for the future and the researchers to contribute to the body of knowledge within this area. The contributions of this project are expected to be:
This project runs between September 1st 2012 to June 30th 2013 and is funded by VINNOVA with SEK 2 million. The project aims at integrating Halmstad Living Lab with Centre for Health Technology Halland and Healthcare Technology Alliance into a new constellation called Health Innovation Alliance (HIA). The aim is to further develop innovation processes based on user needs and to build a sustainable milieu based on revenues from industry and public sector as well as by attracting external funding for research both nationally and internationally. This is a mobilization and concentration to refine a substantial theoretical base into practice.
The SOCIALL project is lead by SINTEF and other partners is Copenhagen Living Lab and Botnia Living Lab. This is a three-year LILAN project with a total budget of SEK 5.345 million SEK funded by Nordforsk. The project objective is: "Value-creating use of social software for co-creation in (a) existing Living Lab infrastructures and (b) SMEs with little or no previous experience with Living Labs". This project ends February 2013.
Key SOCIALL results and effects are:
- Social software optimized for co-creation in Living Labs.
- Increased understanding of the potential of social software for innovation in industry, public sector and academia.
- SME uptake of social software to support user involvement in innovation and co-creation. Expected effect at the level of the participating countries.
- Uptake of social software for co-creation in existing Living Lab infrastructures. Expected effect at the European level.
The E2C project spans over three years (ending March 2013) and is funded by the Ambient Assistent Living (AAL) joint programme. Halmstad Living Lab has a project budget of € 746,245 with national funding from VINNOVA. The E2C proposal focuses on finding a solution to the very challenging issues and problems concerning:
1. Preventing seniors’ internal experience of loneliness as this is strongly associated with dissatisfaction with life.
2. Develop a new innovative solution for an emergent EU market for “preventive social technology”, consisting of the increasing part of elderly people age 65+.
3. Creating implementation strategies that allow the solution a place in the service ecology of elderly care by contributing to a stop in the predicted rise in costs of health and long term care.
The project integrates the individual and societal level with the commercial perspectives in four European countries with the help of Living Lab approaches. E2C aims to offer ways and occasions for communities among the users to be created, as it will intensify interaction, communication and dialogue between the users and contribute to the feeling of wellbeing, self esteem and belonging.
The main results of the project can be divided into three subcategories:
1. At an individual level E2C aims at helping people to stay active by using their creative potential (as former experiences, competences, ways of thinking and working etc.).
2. At a societal level having more elderly people continuing to live independent, active and satisfying lives in their own homes will have a preventive impact on predicted rise in costs of health and long term care.
3. E2C aims at creating a sustainable commercial solution that develop the existing solutions into a wide spread E2C service. This is done by applying specific, relevant media-content and social media principles (as seen on for instance YouTube and Facebook) which are not broadly used by elderly people today.
The project partners involved are: Copenhagen Living Lab (project coordinator), Substanz A/S, Forum Virium Helsinki, Heutink ICT, Multi Media Tables BV, Waag Society, Laurea University of Applied Sciences, Halmstad University (Halmstad Living Lab), Halmstad Municipality and The Active Seniors Association.

We have a new VINNOVA project accepted with funding of SEK 1.5 million called "Free2Ride". It is a project with Free2Move AB, Laholmsortens and Hylte Ryttarförening. Jesper Svensson is the project leader for this project. Free2Ride is a VINNOVA funded project where the technology company is cooperating with researchers and end-users in the development process of an IT-demonstrator. The idea was generated by users in previous Living Lab activities. The IT-demonstrator aims to support safety and communication issues that relates to horseback riding activities. The results from the project will be threefold: 1. The evaluation of the IT-demonstrator will provide solid results concerning what benefits and values the IT-demonstrator brings into this context. 2. The planned approach will enable the researchers to learn more about how user involvement influences IT-innovation process as well as the IT-innovation. Moreover this project enables ways of testing how distributed collaboration tools can support face2face methods and techniques for user involvement. 3. Furthermore, this approach will increase the company’s competence regarding methods for user involvement in IT-innovation processes.
KK-stiftelsen has granted this project SEK 2.015 million over a two-year period. Partners are: Helsingborgs Dagblad Nya Medier AB, Göteborgs-Posten Nya AB, Mediebolaget i Halland AB, NA Tidningar AB, Sydsvenskan AB, VLT and Västkustmedia AB. This is a collaboration project between Halmstad University and Jönköping International Business School. Carina Ihlström Eriksson is project leader.
The two overall research questions, relevant for both industrial and scientific research are:
How can an open media environment be designed to leverage the values of user generated content (UGC) in media and
How can different stakeholders be involved in the process of designing innovative UGC services?
Expected results of the project are:
1. Detailed descriptions of values and drivers for, and challenges of, creating UGC services from
different stakeholders perspectives
2. A conceptual model of an open media environment leverage the values of UGC in media and news
3. A framework for organizing open innovation processes for designing UGC services
We proudly present the newspaper that we have published together with the newspapers.
We have a new project accepted with funding of SEK 995,000 for the first part of three (divided between the three partners) from VINNOVA that is called "Silver Technology". Project partners are Halmstad Living Lab, and Stockholm Living Lab and 2 municipalities (Halmstad and Botkyrka). Carina Ihlström Eriksson is project leader. The project aims at exploring the needs of senior citizens and their next of kins for a better technological aid that supports independent living.
We have a new project accepted with funding of SEK 1.5 million (divided between the three partners) from VINNOVA that is called "Secure at home - smart locks". It is a project with Phoniro AB, Emwitech AB and Föreningen för anhörigvårdare. Jesper Svensson is the project leader of this project.
Secure at Home – Smart Locks is a VINNOVA funded project where two technology companies are cooperating with researchers and end-users in the development process of an IT-demonstrator. The idea to the demonstrator was generated by users in previous Living Lab activities. The IT-demonstrator aims to mitigate the problems connected to safety and security for elderly people living alone at home. Furthermore it will also provide enhanced communication possibilities between for example a caretaker, a caregiver and next of kin to the elderly.
The results from the project will be threefold:
1. The evaluation of the IT-demonstrator will provide solid results concerning what benefits and values the IT-demonstrator brings into this context.
2. The planned approach will enable the researchers to learn more about how user participation influences an IT-innovation process as well as the IT-innovation.
3. Furthermore, this approach will increase the companies competence regarding methods for user involvement in IT-innovation processes.
The project "Secure at home - Living lab" has been accepted by VINNOVA and has been granted SEK 1.6 million for a two year period, starting 2007-08-01. Project leader is Carina Ihlström Eriksson. The project is a collaboration between CIIT, CERES and IS-lab. Partners in this project are:
Living lab – Secure at home is a VINNOVA funded research project exploring the possibilities with a living lab approach. The project primarily focuses on methods for user involvement in the innovation process. The context of the living lab is ICT services and products aimed at supporting and empowering elderly people.
The overall research question within this project is: In what way does user participation affects the innovation process in a Living Lab approach?
The results from the project will be divided into three categories:
1. Evaluation and development of methods for user participation in the innovation process.
2. Establish a long-lasting living lab at Halmstad University. To be able to do this, we need to:
a) generate knowledge about suitable models and methods for a user centric innovation system,
b) bring together relevant and needed partners,
c) establish a user database.
3. Support our partners development processes of new products and services aimed at empowering the elderly.
The project "Designing Ubiquitous Media Services through Action Research" has been accepted by the KK-foundation and has been granted SEK 2.49 million for a two-year period, starting 2006-07-01. Project leader is Carina Ihlström Eriksson. Partners in this project are:
This two year project targets the challenge of designing ubiquitous media services for a multitude of devices and contexts to be consumed anytime and anywhere. Common issues have been identified, such as integration and maintenance, use and adoption of multi-channel services and interaction models. Targeting this challenge, the proposed project will be conducted as an action research effort where newspaper firms collaborate with researchers. Expected results from this project include guidelines for newspaper firms seeking ubiquitous infrastructure support for profitable media services that leverage user value.We proudly present the three movie clips, featuring Albin, Diana and Maria, that is one of the results from our UbiMedia project. The material to the movie clips was developed in collaboration with our nine newspaper partners. The movie clips was produced by Quincy.
