Cascade - a platform to help people making a good informed decision when buying products

About

Within this innovation project Cascade wants to develop a platform to help people making a good informed decision when buying products. During this innovation project iMinds-MICT organizes an explorative Living Lab project  in which the idea will be transformed into a prototype.  In order to have a clear view on the wants of the possible users of the platform a survey will be launched. Based on this survey several personae will be made that can be used during the other steps of the Living Lab project. Within a next step two co-creation sessions are held in order to discuss the current frustrations and dreams of the end-users and to discover the most important features of the innovation. Based on these insights the iMinds prototyping team will develop mock-ups. Together with all the stakeholders this prototype will be further co-designed until there is a clear view on what the innovation should be like. Based on this prototype a Proxy Technology Assessment is held to study the use of the innovation in the natural use-context of the end-users. Finally an evaluative survey will be held in which the final innovation will be evaluated by possible end-users.
