Ambient Assisted Living

STBY was invited by the European AALIANCE project to facilitate a workshop on Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Solutions in Eindhoven, Netherlands. This workshop focussed on roadmapping enabling technologies that motivate and assist older people to stay independent and active for longer, preventing social isolation and promoting societal inclusion.

The Coordination Action AALIANCE – funded by the European Commission, DG Information Society and Media, – coordinates the various activities of the European industry and research institutions in the field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions. These are based on advanced Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the areas of ageing at work, ageing at home and ageing in the society.

Building upon STBY’s expertise with service innovation for care organisations  a ‘design thinking’ approach with design-driven methods and activities was used to facilitate collaborations and discussions within the multi-disciplinary teams of experts helping to identify AAL applications and scenarios.

The Subspecies of Design Researcher

While the role of ‘design researcher’ becomes more common and recognised as a formal position in many different types of organisations, it’s worth reflecting on how we all work and the unique skills and attitudes needed in different settings.
