SocKETs Labs

SocKETs is conducting six case studies across Europe, called SocKETs Labs, and focusing on the application of key enabling technologies toward a diversity of innovation and societal challenges:

  • Circular economy by design processes for the re-use and recycling of materials, toward sustainable consumption and production
  • Electronic health applications
  • Industrial automation systems, toward decent work and better industry, innovation and infrastructures

We will run a series of co-creation activities, experimenting several forms and ways of interaction between stakeholders and citizens to explore priorities, expectations, and concerns on research and innovation in the fields of the SocKETs Labs. Together, industries and citizens will develop and co-create product, design suggestions and shape social-innovation strategies, responsive to societal needs and challenges.

Danish Technological Institute – eHealth


DTI will work with stakeholders and citizens to understand their interest, needs, wishes on actual and potential applications in the e-health field, with a focus on wearables devices combining printed electronic, internet of things and artificial intelligence solutions.

Center for the Promotion of Science – eHealth


Together with CPN, Tecnalia Serbia Ltd. will focus on mutual dialogue with different stakeholders that could contribute to improving healthcare and quality of life in a variety of different topics, spanning from neurorehabilitation and rehabilitation in general, biomedical instrumentation and assistive devices, to biomaterials and electrochemical sensors.

Centre for Research and Analysis – eHealth


CRA SocKETs Lab will launch a co-design experiment on KETs-based applications in diseases monitoring, innovative devices and practices, ICT applications and platforms that are user-friendly, non-invasive and can be used in a non-hospital environment.

AHHAA Science Centre – Circular Economy


Based on a rigorous analysis of the Estonian innovation landscape, AHHAA will develop a SocKETs Lab focused on circular economy, involving various stakeholders from this field.

Italian Association for Industrial Research – Circular Economy


The Italian SocKETs Lab will develop dialogue with stakeholders to co-create visions, strategies and applications on the use of advanced technologies to promote circular economy in the building and construction sectors as well as in urban planning and regeneration.

Tecnalia Research & Innovation – Automation system


The SocKETs Lab, developed by Tecnalia in the Basque Country, will create a community of practice industry representatives, citizens and stakeholders to discuss, think and prototype solutions related to potential transformation of the work due to recent developments in Artificial Intelligence.
