Living Lab projects

For us, treating the University as a Living Lab means using our own student and researcher capabilities to solve social responsibility and sustainability issues relating to our infrastructure and practices.

What is a Living Lab?

Living Labs offer real-life research opportunities for students and researchers, evidence-based recommendations for operational staff and opportunities for research impact for academics.
