Purpose and goal
Increased visibility of the projects, extended consortium, deeper involvement of firms in the projects, strengthening the Built Environment Arena at JSP. The main goal and objective is to create the sustainable living of the future where Academia, Government and Business will reach further together. The fulfilment is very good. The interest for the projects is huge, both Riksbyggen and HSB will locate central R&D facilities here. The great visibility of the projects will attract researchers, funding agencies, EU and society at large to become involved, contributing to the projects.
Results and expected effects
One expected result was to have immersed ourselves in some important questions, such as design enabling research on sustainable living, social sustainability connected to living and housing design. This has been carried out. We have also carried out the planned number of workshops, concretised and gathered our forces to create a strong partnership for the collaborative proposal. The projects have been greatly strengthened during the project period, with new partners entering both projects. The visibility has been excellent, in media as well as through conferences and web pages.
Approach and implementation
The projects will be coupled to the Built Environment Arena being developed at JSP. The proximity of Academia, government and firms creates a unique opportunity to test and develop technology, legislation and methods. Creating an organisational structure where SME´s collaborate with and learn from the larger companies, the two R&D projects HLL and PFH, run by two of Sweden´s largest housing organisations will be at the leading edge of development of the sustainable housing of the future, creating the conditions for a sustainable, yet commercially viable life style of the residents.
