Social and technical solutions which increase human well-being, operational capacity and energy efficient living were being sought especially within the context of aging population living.

CKIR’s main task was to support the whole HEA project. A clear definition of the project goals, limits and different roles of the actors enable an efficient focusing on the primary tasks and guarantee well-functioning co-operation. A common research methodology ensures the high quality, impact and wider generalization of the results in the project’s research. CKIR’s central task in HEA project was the detailed definition of the project’s research goals and the utilized research framework and methodology.

As a result of the CKIR’s project work together with the project partners, a research framework was constructed for the use of the project pilots. A common approach guaranteed the quality and validity of research and enabled the comparability of the results between different pilots. In the end of the project the collected data was analyzed by utilizing the common research framework. The objective of the analysis was to state the economic, social and ecologic impact of the results and thus to produce information for decision-making regarding the wider deployment of the solutions.
