The Manager of the Living+ Platform, Aija Staffans, opened the event by introducing the main objectives and purpose of the platform. During the lunch that followed, three guiding questions encouraged the participants to approach the theme of human-centered living environments from several perspectives.

Wrapping up the discussions revealed that human-centered living environments are considered to be a highly interesting and acute research area in several schools at Aalto. Inviting researchers to similar events was considered to remain important also in the future.
