Wellbeing technology has been under systematic development in SeAMK during the past two decades. The merge of South Ostrobothnia Health Technology Development Centre into SeAMK in October 2018 further strengthened SeAMK’s expertise in adapting ICT technologies into health care sector’s needs. In 2018 and 2019 emphasis has been on developing and updating the living labs. SeAMK Living Labs in Wellbeing Technology play a vital role in regional and international RDI.
