Open Innovation

In terms of an "open innovation" approach we would be happy to receive your ideas and feedback!

Running Projects

  • AAT Living Lab:
    Our Living Lab test room currently is rebuilt at our new location. Meanwhile it already serves as testbed for our projects.

    Comprehensive safety solution for people with Aphasia. In summer 2022 the evaluation of the first version with users and carers in Hungary, Portugal and Austria was completed. An improved app is currently being tested.

Our current focus of work is on Assistive Technology for the so far neglected area of toilets. The past lack of initiatives is the more remarkable, as also in this area there is high need and visiting a toilet is part of daily routine. Beginning with the itoilet project for stand-up support on the toilet and the study toilet4me on application in (semi-)public environment we are currently working on the topic in several projects.
  • Diana:

The final field trials with prototypes in Poland, Belgium and The Netherlands have been finished and evaluated. A total of 143 users and many stakeholders were involved.

We also support the (this page is currently available in German only) UNIKATE Idea Competition by supervising participating students. On September 16th 2021 6 projects of the call 2020/21 have been awarded.
6 new projects were selected and implemented in the 2021/22 call, the awarding ceremony was on September 16th, 2022.
The new call 2022/23 is already closed. - for details see UNIKATE Idea Competition. After a joint initial incubator workshop now individual workhops with all applicants together with experts with disability are held, followed by a selection of the supported projects before Christmas.
