We aim to create actions for the design and development of new “living” products starting from an entrepreneurial fabric of excellence but without the tools to activate common synergies of industrial research and system innovation. The technical-industrial innovation is a concrete spin- off of the network, in terms of new competitive products generated by the network design of the different companies that develop products for automation, home automation, smart monitoring and sensors, video surveillance and devices for personal security and places of life, software products also “mobile”, artificial intelligence. These interconnected partners have new market prospects in the field of integrated living systems and clear potential to offer new specialized employment in the medium term.
Business creation, innovation and technology transfer are intrinsic aspects of the network that brings together the entire chain of conception and design (universities, research centers), development and production (companies) and use (end users, associations, social cooperatives) of new products for living, encouraging the transition from theory and research to the concrete implementation of modularly interconnected, sustainable, accessible commercial products. The social impact of the network on the strategy of active aging as a fundamental element of benefit on the quality of life and well-being of citizens, first of all among the weakest sections of the
population. The network, by systematizing the different individualities it contains, leads companies and research in the Veneto region to have a greater impact on the extraterritorial and international markets, enabling them to synergistically occupy the different components of the living market with products that can be used to create a system and define the living environment at 360°.
Design and development of innovative products for the improvement of the quality of living environments also through the introduction of electronic/informatic enabling technologies (ICT, robotics/automation, IOT) and the adoption of design and design models centered on the person and communities of practices.
Design and development of new manufacturing products highly innovative and enabling, with a high level of interoperability, interconnection and modularity, with strong promotion of new professional activities and new push for the participation of local businesses in international markets dedicated to living and active aging technologies.
Improving the quality of life and the well-being of citizens with particular reference to active aging and the weakest sections of the population (elderly, disabled, children) and people temporarily transiting through cities (tourists, travellers, students, professionals).
Design and development of methodologies and products for the improvement of accessibility and inclusivity of indoor and outdoor living environments, with particular attention to workplaces.
Increase of multi-sector technology transfer actions University-Enterprise-Territory for the design and development of intelligent and sustainable technologies dedicated to living environments with the creation of opportunities for the birth of innovative start-up and spin-off.
Creation and consolidation of a regional network structure to approach national and international initiatives and actions (in particular European H2020) related to theme of sustainable technological innovation in living spaces. Development and promotion of a network of orthogonal scientific and professional skills to address the whole issue of independent living and to promote the culture of sustainability.
