Smart Housing Småland supported research, development and innovation. This was done primarily by supporting the process of developing an idea into a project. We developed a model for the process that we called the Innovation Process.
The goal was to get the snowball rolling, i.e. to support the development of a project idea into an application for funding a project, build a prototype to test and demonstrate something new, or do a feasibility study to examine the viability of an idea – which then could be developed into a larger project. The hope was that prototypes and projects aroused interest and achieved success that continued to develop after the direct connection to Smart Housing Småland.
