Digital Living Lab

Laurea Digital Living Lab is project-based learning environment utilizing new ”Industry 4.0” -technologies.

Digital Living Lab physical space in Laurea Leppävaara-campus, room 009.

Currently our technologies capabilities cover robotics, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), 3D-modeling and -printing, drones, Internet of Things (IOT) and artificial intelligence (AI).

Also digital marketing, sales and ecommerce – projects are common in Digital Living Lab.

The students work in real-life development projects together with companies and Laurea’s key partners. Also, RDI-work is done to experiment new technologies and to develop capability for future customer projects.

As pedagogical model we apply LearningByDeveloping (LbD) -model. Typically the students work in multi-disciplinary teams. We have collaboration with other universities in Finland and abroad. We support also students’ own employers’ projects and student entrepreneurship.

Laurea Digital Living Lab affiliated with the Z-Inspection® Initiative in March 2024. Z-Inspection® is a process used to evaluate the trustworthiness of AI-based technologies at different stages of the AI lifecycle. Read more.
