The Living Lab is a testbed in which all kinds of innovations related to the living environment can be researched. Themes will range from research on applying new materials (both in building components and interior), testing new services (like pay-per-use), water innovations (local production of drinking water from rain), new installations, domotics, DC grids, innovative appliances, etc. Together with Sustainer Homes the testbed is designed to be flexible, adaptable and modular so that different parties can easily install and research their innovations.
In collaboration with DUWO the houses will be inhabited by real inhabitants (students), assuring that innovations are subject to real usage, real consumptions and real feedback.
The first 30 m2 student homes are available for research.
