Research & Development

The best understanding of holistic wellbeing

We want to generate know-how about individual’s holistic wellbeing – mind, brain, body. Together with our network of companies and multidisciplinary research and education institutes we aim to create innovations and significant research based business.

RDI project

Wellbeing Data Lab

The Wellbeing Data Lab project accelerates the opportunities for companies to grow new businesses in the ecosystem. The effectiveness of the project is based on new application innovations, which more effectively utilize information about the community's activity, wellbeing and movement based on the operating models, technical capabilities and data created in the project.

The project lowers the threshold for companies to join the university's research and project activities. The project is implemented in cooperation between the University of Jyväskylä and the City of Jyväskylä and is part of the ecosystem agreement signed with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.
