HSB Living Lab

HSB Living Lab is a unique research and collaboration project of 12 partners in the built environment sector. The Living Lab is built as a residential building with 29 apartments for students and guest researchers on the campus of Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The involved partners, the available sensor systems, and the established processes all aim to facilitate and develop sustainable solutions for the future of living.

About us

While the 1st and 2nd generations of living labs focused on materials, technologies and systems with limited interaction with users, the aim of the 3rd generation is to optimise the interface with people in a reality-based situation. 3rd generation living labs require specific processes and infrastructures for integrated research thinking and systems to be built into an inhabited building. Co-creation and open innovation promote and create new models and procedures for collaboration with a view to increasing innovative thinking in the built housing environment.

We're partly funded by Climate-KIC, Europe’s largest public-private innovation partnership working together to address the challenge of climate change.

HSB Living Lab is one of multiple BTA Living Labs
