CODER is an ICT-enabled living lab entirely dedicated to the innovation, development and validation of software systems, products and services with a human mind-set. The Lab’s philosophy and methodological approach are based on the original living lab concept proposed by Prof. William Mitchell (MIT Media Lab and School of Architecture and City Planning). It combines a physical smart environment that motivates open innovation, a cloud-based toolbox and equipment to develop and validate a wide range of user experience-centric software products, systems and services, as well as the large network of stakeholders and technology partners that provide the best business and technical competence and mentoring to the drivers of software technology innovation.

The lab aims to be a place for effective and efficient engagement of a large pool of user communities and all stakeholders in all the stages of the software development and innovation lifecycle while supporting the five keys activities that are the essence of living labs:

  1. User research (understanding who are the users and stakeholders)
  2. Co-design/co-creation
  1. Evaluation before the development and deployment
  2. Open innovation
  3. The alignment of these activities with the sustainability development challenges

The CODER living lab approach is dedicated specifically for understanding how software technology can support sustainability development to mainly educate, persuade and increase the awareness of citizen regarding for example environmental sustainability concerns. CODER is the place also for changing the human mind-set using software products, systems and services. The lab is currently supporting research in the following areas:

  • Human-data interaction for data literacy
  • Participatory sensing and civic tech
  • Data and technology for ‘More-than-human’ and sustainable urban design
  • Smart Cities
  • Energy Citizenship
