    A Milieu for Innovation: Defining Living Labs2009In: Stimulating recovery: the role of innovation management : proceedings of the 2nd ISPIM Innovation Symposium, New York City, USA, 6-9 December 2009 / [ed] K.R.E. Huizingh et al, New York: ISPIM , 2009, p. 12-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new trend of user involvement in open innovation processes has emerged. Concurring with this trend the Living Lab concept has been re-vitalized. This concept has attracted attention lately, but there exist no coherent view. In this paper we discuss and define the concept and propose five key components and five key principles for Living Labs based on experiences from over 30 development and research projects within two Living Labs, Botnia Living Lab and Halmstad Living Lab. The key components are: ICT & Infrastructure; Management; Partners & Users; Research; and Approach. The key principles are: Openness; Influence; Realism; Value; and Sustainability. Our proposed definition of a Living Lab is: A Living Lab is a user-centric innovation milieu built on every-day practice and research, with an approach that facilitates user influence in open and distributed innovation processes engaging all relevant partners in real-life contexts, aiming to create sustainable values.

    Criteria for social software implementation in Living Labs2012In: ISM 2012 workshop proceedings: Innovation through Social Media / [ed] Asbjørn Følstad, Anna Ståhlbröst, Esbjörn Ebbesson, Jesper Svensson, Trondheim: Akademika forlag, 2012, p. 32-40Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Halmstad Living Lab has extended experience of working closely with end-users in cocreation projects and has, during recent years, started to experiment more and more with social software and other online software programs to include users in the innovation process. In this paper we draw upon our experiences as a Living Lab to generate a framework that details key criteria for implementation of social software in a Living Lab setting. The framework can be used to guide successful implementation of social software in co-creation projects and to help evaluate or assess proposed solutions to be used in a Living Lab setting to support user involvement.

    A User Centered Innovation Approach Identifying Key User Values for the E-newspaper2009In: International Journal of E-Services and Mobile Applications, ISSN 1941-627X, E-ISSN 1941-627X, Vol. 1, no 3, p. 38-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We have studied the pre-adoption phase of the e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper published with e-paper technology. The research question of this article is: In what way can a user centered innovation process contribute to identifying key values in mobile innovations? The aim of this article is threefold: firstly, to identify key values for the e-newspaper, and secondly, to examine the intention to adopt a new possible innovation and thirdly, to explore user centered design processes ability to capture user values early in the innovation process. We have identified seven key user values: mobility, availability, personalization, usability, interactivity, readability and environment. Furthermore, we found that surprisingly many would consider exchanging their traditional newspaper with an e-newspaper in the future, indicating that the e-newspaper have a fair chance of becoming an important innovation. Finally, we propose a four phase model for identifying user values in a pre-adoption phase of an innovation.

    Co-creation in Living Labs: Experiences from Halmstad Living Lab2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Halmstad Living Lab was established in 2007 with the application areas of health technology and media, but have been working with co-creation since 2004. Our experiences from co-reation is derived from four research projects, two within media (DigiNews and UbiMedia) and two from health technology (Secure at Home - Living Lab and Secure at Home - Smart Locks). We have conducted 100 user involvement activities with around 500 individuals in face to face activities and over 7000 individuals in online surveys. The empirical activities all relates to different innovation processes concerning both products and services. The innovation processes has involved different stakeholders such as companies, researchers and users who have worked in an open environment to create and validate innovations. Below we discuss our experiences.

    How to predict the future of an IT innovation?: Examining Pre-adoption of the e-newspaper2008In: Proceedings of the 31st Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia, IRIS (Information Systems Research in Scandinavia) , 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we investigate the perceptions of potential adopters in a pre-adoption phase of a new mobile innovation, i.e. the e-newspaper, a newspaper service published on e-paper technology, by applying Rogers’ (1995) Innovation-Decision Process and perceived attributes of innovations. We have conducted a study in two stages, in 2005 and 2006, with user evaluations of e-newspaper prototypes and early version of an e-newspaper, including tests, questionnaires and interviews. The overall research question is: What attributes are central from a user adoption perspective to launch a successful e-newspaper innovation? The paper contributes to existing adoption and m-commerce research by a) exploring the applicability of Rogers' framework in a pre-adoption phase in two stages, comparing the results regarding perceived attributes and intention to adopt, and b) presenting detailed descriptions of factors that enhance or inhibit an e-newspaper introduction, compared to other publication channels. The identified factors influencing the intention to adopt besides price are; mobility, interactivity, readability, format and size, functionality, usability and navigation.

    Designing the Future e-newspaper: the da Vinci Approach2005In: HCI international 2005: 11th international conference on human-computer interaction, July 22-27, 2005, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, Mahwah N.J.: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we propose an approach for gathering data to generate user requirements for an artifact under development, in this case the e-newspaper based on an e-paper solution. Inspired by future workshops, scenario- and mock-up techniques we suggest the da Vinci approach. In addition to describing the approach we also report types of requirements possible to derive. We conclude by discussing experiences from applying the approach in the DigiNews project.

    Abstract [en]

    The introduction of the e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper based on e-paper technology brings new design challenges. In this paper we report from two parallel studies, an online questionnaire to newspaper readers and a questionnaire to newspaper designers. The aim was to find out what qualities to bring from print and online to the e-newspaper as initial input in the design process to design a usable and acceptable artifact. The results show both similarities and differences between the two respondent groups.

    Participatory Design of Future Every Day IT Artifacts: Engaging readers and publishers in designing the e-newspaper2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we describe a PD approach applied in a context of designing a future everyday IT artifact with limited resources. In the DigiNews project we aim at proposing design suggestions for the future e-newspaper, i.e. a newspaper based on e-paper technology. The PD approach includes future workshop, scenario and mock-up techniques and focus groups. Based on eleven workshops with readers, newspaper staff and advertisers and three different focus groups involving readers, newspaper designers and interaction designers respectively, we illustrate the various types of results which could be derived from this approach.

    Designing Ubiquitous Media Services: Exploring the Two-Sided Market of Newspapers2016In: Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, ISSN 0718-1876, E-ISSN 0718-1876, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The two-sided market of newspapers with its two customer groups, readers and advertisers, is changing due to digitalization. This former stable and profitable market has lately suffered from both decreasing subscription and advertiser revenue. In this paper we use the term ubiquitous media environments to represent the vision of future media environments enabling device independent mass-scale distribution of ubiquitous media services in integrated infrastructures. We build upon a two-year action research project where researchers worked together with the Swedish newspaper industry to envision future ubiquitous media services and explore the following research question: how can ubiquitous media services be designed to leverage and balance value in a two-sided market? Five examples of ubiquitous media services were developed in collaboration and thereafter evaluated. These services were then illustrated in movie clips to trigger discussions on how ubiquitous media services can be designed. Drawing on the value aspects of ubiquitous media services from an advertiser and reader point-of-view and the platform owner role of the newspapers in a future ubiquitous media environments, we describe and discuss how ubiquitous media services can be designed to leverage value for advertisers and readers, and how newspaper organizations can strategize ubiquitous media environments. © 2016 Universidad de Talca - Chile

    Living Labs: Dilemmas of an Active Researcher2009In: eChallenges e-2009 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham & Miriam Cunningham, Dublin: International Information Management Corporation Limited, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses Living Labs from a researcher view based on experiences from Halmstad Living Lab with about 100 activities with different stakeholders. We define Living Labs as a milieu based on continuity, in which methods and techniques are used to empower users and to involve all relevant stakeholders, in open innovation processes in realistic settings. The relevant stakeholders are; researchers, companies, users, public partners and stakeholders of emerging technology. We argue for the relevance of the researcher stakeholder and discuss the dilemmas of an active researcher regarding role, process, outcome and relations. We conclude by suggesting a model indicating tensions in a Living Lab from a researcher view, i.e. neutrality vs. taking sides; research process vs. innovation process; research contribution vs. market value; and critical reflections vs. socialization.

    Audience view on new technology for media consumption2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we experiment with different audience groups to study how they differ with respect to the adoption of new media products/services. We expand the existing framework of early adopters, which is heavily directed towards the technological aspects of a product, by including users that are more interested in the social and content-related aspects of products/services. We are interested in seeing whether these audience groups differ in terms of preferences for new media products in order to shed light on possible strategies for the introduction of the e-newspaper. The study was done in a larger research project, DigiNews, on the introduction of e-newspapers. The paper is built on the results from an online survey on attitudes and preferences towards new technology, media in general and a planned e-newspaper. Data was collected from in total 2976 respondents at the web sites of three Swedish newspapers Aftonbladet, Göteborgs-Posten, and Sundsvalls Tidning.

    Ethical Heuristics – A Tool for Applying Ethics in User-Involved IS Projects2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    User involvement in information system development, as well as in digital innovation processes, is viewed as a key element for success. By introducing users in IS projects, ethical consideration is needed. Even though ethical theoretical frameworks are available in the IS (and other) spheres; cheap and fast methods and tools for applying ethics efficiently and effectively in everyday design and development work remain scarce. This paper presents a suggested heuristics-based tool that bears the promise of quick integration, and effective and efficient application of ethics in user-involved IS projects.

    Mobile Multimedia Services - Strategy to attract young audiences?2007In: Proceedings of IRIS'30, Tampere, Finland, August 11-14, 2007, p. 15-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, a questionnaire study concerning young Swedish peoplesuse patterns for mobile services is conducted. The study investigates what possibleadded value mobile multimedia services can provide for the users. Furthermore aworkshop with a focus group is conducted that also examines the possible added valuewith mobile multimedia services. This study also investigates what barriers there is formobile multimedia services. The identified barriers are analyzed using the InnovationDiffusion Theory (Rogers, 1995). The overall research question in this paper is: canmobile multimedia services be a feasible strategy for service providers to attract youngaudiences? Two main barriers for mobile multimedia services are identified, cost andtechnical restraints. Further on, one barrier that was identified in the workshop was thelack of knowledge of what services that were offered by service providers and mobileoperators. Even if complexity issues could be identified regarding the configuration of themobile devices, they were not critical. The results indicate that mobile multimediaservices may be a feasible strategy for service providers and mobile operators to reach ayounger audience.

Proceedings / [ed] Bill Doolin, Eleni Lamprou, Nathalie Mitev, Laurie McLeod, Heidelberg: Springer, 2014, p. 115-131Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a literature review, this paper identifies four socio-technical challenges relating to innovation actor's interactions in digital innovation. Furthermore, the paper explores how these challenges can be addressed. The challenges are investigated in a case study of digital innovation. The study is based on a two year long research and development project where an e-newspaper concept and a demonstrator based on e-paper technology was developed. Based on empirical findings, the paper presents eight activities which address the identified socio-technical challenges with digital innovation. The activities are: 1) support transparent digital ecosystem relationships, 2) facilitate cross-organizational communication, 3) create digital value blueprints, 4) translate heterogeneous knowledge, 5) involve all relevant user groups, 6) identify, design for, and authenticate digital user values, 7) design for multiple contexts of use, and 8) prototype iteratively. © IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2014

    Digital Innovation: Orchestrating Network Activities2015Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Digitization of analogue everyday artifacts, i.e. when physical products are equipped with digital capabilities, has a profound impact on today’s society. Some examples of these digital innovations aimed at consumer markets are the “connected” car, the digitized television set, and in the near future, digitized IKEA furniture. Digital innovation provides endless opportunities for providing value adding products and services. However, in digital innovation there is a need to find new ways of organizing network activities, i.e. activities such as e.g. production and translation of knowledge and enrollment of actors. These activities need to embrace and build on the networked aspects and the complexity inherent to digital innovation. This requires network activities that can overcome challenges with the ambiguous and messy characteristics of digital innovation. In this thesis, I propose that the theoretical perspective of network orchestration can enlighten fruitful ways to address challenges that are encountered when organizing network activities in digital innovation. Inspired by practical challenges with digital innovation, as well as contemporary calls for research within IS, this thesis investigates: How can network activities be orchestrated in digital innovation? Two cases of digital innovation aimed at consumer markets are studied. The first case concerns the digitization of the newspaper. The second case regards the digitization of door locks. Literature about digital innovation is used to understand the context of the studied phenomenon. Furthermore, theories about network orchestration as well as activities in innovation are used as a theoretical framework to help answer the research question. The thesis is based on an interpretative perspective where a multi-method approach has been applied to address the research question. The contribution is divided into two different parts. The first part presents four categories of empirically derived network activities that address socio-technical challenges with organizing digital innovation. The second part is a proposed model detailing orchestration of network activities in digital innovation. The model is based around the four suggested categories of network activities: (1) Supporting flexible innovation networks, (2) Production and translation of layered architectural knowledge, (3) Addressing heterogeneous user communities, and (4) Harnessing generativity to leverage value. The categories of network activities can be viewed as building blocks for the orchestration process. By emphasizing both a proactive and a reactive way of orchestrating digital innovation, the model proposes a means for organizations to address the ambiguity and complexity of digital innovation.

    Heterogeneity in Digital Innovation: A Study of the e-Newspaper Case2017In: International Journal of Social and Organizational Dynamics in IT, ISSN 2155-6334, E-ISSN 2155-6342, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on challenges that arise because of the heterogeneous nature of digital innovation. These challenges are studied through a case study involving a two year long research and development project concerning the development of the e-newspaper concept and a demonstrator based on e-paper technology. To enable the exploration of these challenges, a multi-method approach was chosen. The paper is built using a two-step process; first, presenting a framework based on a review of related literature identifying characteristics and aspects of heterogeneity in digital innovation, and secondly, applying this framework into the analysis of the e-newspaper case. Based on the empirical findings, the paper presents a discussion which elaborates on how digital innovation can be organized in order to address the identified challenges with heterogeneity in digital innovation. Furthermore, it is suggested that digital technology targeted towards everyday use is inherently leading to innovation networks of heterogeneous actors as well as heterogeneous users of digital innovation. © 2017, IGI Global

    Social media for user innovation in Living Labs: a framework to support user recruitment and commitment2013In: Proceedings of the XXIV ISPIM conference, Lappeenranta: Lappeenranta University of Technology Press , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social media are becoming an increasingly relevant channel for user involvement. However, their uptake in Living Labs environments, as a means to engage users in innovation processes, is still limited. The aim of this paper is to explore challenges and opportunities related to the usage of social media for user involvement in co-creative processes, The findings presented emerge both from the available literature and case studies, and emphasise four different dimensions influencing user engagement: facilitator, community, platform and innovation process. Based on these dimensions, the authors propose a basic framework, intended as the point of departure for taking the next step toward the construction and verification of theoretical constructs that can help inform and guide future innovation projects.

    Living Lab Principles: Supporting Digital Innovation2012In: The Proceedings of The XXIII ISPIM Conference 2012 Barcelona, Spain - 17-20 June 2012, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more complex with a need for heterogeneous actors collaborating. One approach to support digital innovation is Living Lab. However, even if Living Lab seems like a promising initiative, there is little guidance of how Living Lab can be setup and managed to support digital innovation processes. The aim with this paper is to provide guidance for Living Lab practice and research by presenting a set of four Living Lab principles and explain how these can be put into Living Lab practice. Derived from Living Lab literature, the principles are established and then elaborated by analysing a Living Lab case study from the perspective of the following principles: Boundary spanning co-creation, Exploration & experimentation, User-centricity, Realism & Authenticity. The analysis of the empirical case study is guided by the following research question: how can digital innovation processes be supported by Living Lab principles?

    Facilitating Social and Cognitive Translation in Innovation Networks2010In: MCIS 2010 Proceedings: Submissions from 2010 / [ed] Angela Sansonetti, 2010, p. Paper 85-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we present a two year long interpretative case study based on a Living Lab project. The case study is used to in retrospect investigate cognitive and social translation in a doubly distributed innovation network. By identifying and empirically exemplify how translations occurred, we present insights of how to support cognitive and social translations in these kind of networks. Using the concepts from Yoo et al. (2009) we explore the research question: how can cognitive and social translation be supported in Living Labs? Based on the findings we conclude that Living Labs can support heterogeneous set of actors and knowledge resources by supporting cognitive translation with techniques such as scenarios, mock-ups and prototypes. By working with an iterative process the involved actors can be supported to materialize prior and new knowledge which can be translated between different communities of actors. By setting up and providing a common ground a trading zone can be established supporting the social translations within the network by offering a space where negotiation of interests and alignment of perspectives can be facilitated.

    Design of navigational support for task oriented reading in e-newspapers2006In: Proceedings of the 29th IRIS, 2006, p. 21-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to explore how the navigational support in an e-newspaper should be  designed to support the users task oriented reading behavior. An e-newspaper is a newspaper produced on e-paper, which combines the readability of paper, with the possibilities of digital media such as streaming updates, interactivity and multimedia. One advantage with the e-paper technology is its high contrast and readability; it uses no backlight and only consumes power when the pages are updated. This study is part of the European DigiNews project where three high fidelity e-newspaper prototypes has been produced in cooperation with readers and newspaper designers. These prototypes have been tested on 36 readers to examine how to design navigational support to aid task oriented reading. Six guidelines for have been generated from the results of the study which covers information structure, hyperlinks, feedback and visual cues.

    Challenges with User Involvement in a Living Lab context2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses user involvement in a Living Lab based on the call for research regarding the following challenges: How to select the appropriate users?; How to organize user involvement?; and How to motivate users? We discuss these questions based on empirical experiences from about 100 user involvement activities from the media and health technology application domains of Halmstad Living Lab. We conclude by summarizing our experiences as guidelines addressing these challenges, e.g. User selection criteria specifically derived for each case; Mix between traditional and virtual activities; Facilitate instead of categorize; Acknowledge that motivational factors might differ between users and domain fields.

    Exploring Social Aspects Influence on Change in Network Relationships: A Case Study of Digital Innovation2012In: International Journal of Social and Organizational Dynamics in IT, ISSN 2155-6334, E-ISSN 2155-6342, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 14-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more and more networked, and actors are growing dependent oneach other’s competences, resources and knowledge. In networks developing digital innovation actors needto identify, mobilize, and integrate diverse and heterogeneous knowledge resources to be able to innovatesuccessfully. Social aspects are important where heterogeneous actors connect, negotiate, and adjust to eachother’s perspectives. The aim of this paper is to explain how social aspects such as trust, commitment andpower, influence changes in relationships in digital innovation networks. A case study approach was selectedto study events involving multiple actors in an innovation and development project aimed at introducingtechnology that aids elderly, home care personnel and next of kin by improving the management of homecare visits. Based on the authors’ findings they present a model for how social aspects influence changes inrelationships and conclude by making six propositions. Copyright © 2012, IGI Global.

    Open Innovations in Small Enterprises - A Living Lab Approach2009In: Proceedings of The XX ISPIM Conference Vienna, Austria - 21-24 June 2009, The International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) , 2009, p. 10-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we have addressed the research question: In what way does a Living Lab approach influence the innovation process from a small enterprise perspective? Within Halmstad Living Lab we have performed approximately 50 Living Lab activities involving user and enterprise representatives within the health technology sector. We have discussed our experiences according to literature on innovation and competence in relation to a Living Lab approach and have identified four challenges that need to be addressed. Examples of these challenges are; In what way can Living Lab activities contribute to expand the competencies within the small enterprises and how to create openness between enterprises and other stakeholders regarding legal documents such as IPR and patent?

    Abstract [en]

    Digital innovation processes are becoming more and more networked, where stakeholders are growing dependent of each other’s competences, resources and knowledge. In networks working with digital innovation, actors need to identify, mobilize and integrate diverse and heterogeneous knowledge resources to be able to innovate successfully. Social aspects seem to be important at the boundaries of communities where heterogeneous actors connect, negotiate and adjust to each other’s perspectives. The aim with this paper is to explain what role relationships play in digital innovation networks as well as to describe how social aspects influence these relationships. A case study approach was selected to study events involving multiple stakeholders in a development project aimed at introducing technology that aid elderly, home care personnel and next of kin by improving the management of home care visits. We describe how social aspects such as trust, interest, and commitment between actors influence the relationships. © 2012 IEEE.

    Methods and Techniques for User Contribution: Challenges from a Living Lab Perspective2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses user contribution in innovation processes from a Living Labperspective. We view Living Lab as a milieu in which specific methods are used to involvedifferent stakeholders in open innovation processes to create and validate IT-products andservices in a real world setting. The involvement of different stakeholders is of particular importance in a Living Lab to secure the development of usable products and services. In thispaper we focus on methods and techniques for user contribution in innovation processes by discussing our own experiences based on 100 activities conducted within four differentresearch projects. The purpose of this paper is to discuss our experiences of methods andtechniques for user contribution in relation to three different aspects: a) phase in the innovation process, b) kind of user contribution and c) type of users, all in relation to a Living Lab perspective. We conclude that there is a need to translate face to face methods and techniques to distributed user involvement activities to be able to scale up and use these in a Living Lab setting.

    Application of self-determination theory in the e-health industry – promoting sustainable exercise motivation2015In: Proceeding: 14th European Congress of Sport Psychology: Sport Psychology: Theories and Applications for Performance, Health and Humanity: 14-19 July 2015, Bern, Switzerland / [ed] Olivier Schmid & Roland Seiler, Bern: University of Bern , 2015, p. 372-372Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Developing tailored digital interventions for exercise motivation by applying behavioral theory into existing web services in cooperation with the e-health industry could create a mutual base for experience exchange and practical implications. It could also add higher standards to e-health business by providing a scientifically sound and trustworthy foundation for digital solutions. This project aims to design an interactive tool grounded in sport and exercise psychology and combined with the latest expertise from information technology and innovation science, considering e-health industrial requirements and user needs. A main objective is to test the efficacy of using Self-Determination Theory (SDT) in designing, constructing and evaluating an exercise intervention. The digital intervention is based on a literature review mapping exercise motivation related to self-determination theory, complemented by qualitative cross-disciplinary interaction design methodologies, such as qualitative analysis of interviews and contextual observation capturing participant goals, behaviour, preferences, attitudes and frustrations. Intervention contents are essentially autonomy supportive structures, goal-setting support and relapse prevention, self-regulation structures, health information and web links. In February 2015 the intervention prototype will be pilot tested in a randomized controlled trial (RCT), involving existing members and clients (N > 10 000) of two health service companies. Outcomes relate to self-determined exercise motivation (The Basic Psychological Needs in Exercise Scale and The Behavioral Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire-2) and exercise behaviour, measured both by self-report measures (Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire) and step counters. The RCT contains three measure points in order to allow advanced analyses of change and mechanisms based on the SDT-process model and motivational profiles. Latent growth curve and structural equation models will primarily be used to analyse data. This pilot study will create a baseline for elaboration into a second phase, were the digital tool will be further developed and longitudinally tested and evaluated over a nine months period. © 2015 University of Bern, Institut of Sport Science

    Connect: Design for an Empathic Society2013Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The prospects are clear: we will probably live longer. The number of people aged 65 and up will increase enormously over the next few decades. Society will change as a result, but in what manner?

    Europe - and, in fact, probably the world - faces the challenge of preventing loneliness and isolation amongst a growing group of senior people. The oldest part of the population is at particular risk of becoming isolated and lonely as they grow older and their work-related networks erode. While working in the field of technology and aging, the authors discovered that there is a whole new field to be explored, namely the phenomenon of connectedness.

    This book is written by a group of authors with very different backgrounds, varying from business, ICT, marketing, anthropology, medicine, design and computer interaction. They all felt the urge to explore this field of connectedness and they discovered new opportunities for the emerging market of ‘aging-driven design’.

    By unfolding the very nature of relationships and age-based transitions in life, the authors invite the reader to join them in an effort to design for connectedness: to reframe the picture, rethink our options and reinvent how to connect!
