We promote ICT technologies to improve QoL of individuals through rigorous scientific research, education, science communication and outreach. Currently our reserach is applied in mobile healthcare (mHealth) for wellbeing, disease self-management, active and healthy ageing and Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) by leveraging personal, big data approaches (like 'quantified-self' one) in Living Lab settings.
We have an an affiliated "mQoL Living Lab" with our lab enabling us to conduct user-centric studies and specifically involve many different individuals in design of solutions and trials.
