What we do

Our imec.livinglabs research includes users early on and all through the innovation process. This approach provides a solution to innovation thresholds and challenges such as:

  • Capturing, understanding and validating users’ interactions with products and services, at an early stage. 
  • Transforming ideas into prototypes users can interact with in their daily context.
  • Shaping ‘(minimum) viable products’ through an iterative, agile process. 
  • Designing business models through stakeholder analysis and go-to-market definition.

We conduct living labs research for innovative digital solutions. We also build customized living lab projects to tackle your challenges; from the fuzzy front-end to the market introduction of your product or service.

Imec.livinglabs is a leading organization in the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), drawing upon a state-of-the-art living lab toolbox that consists of scientifically validated R&D methods. Through our living lab projects, we continuously validate, improve and expand these methods and their supporting tools.
