Specifically, this innovative research has utilitsed the methodologies of the Living Labs utilising participatory qualitative research methods to empower the citizens to inform local sustainable service development, mapped to local needs. This paper will present the research objectives and findings of gathering user requirements. The research objectives include: Improved health, safety and well being for elderly people in northern periphery region.
