How do you approach designing for the future?

The goal of PalCom is to develop a computing concept that will fit the information age. The project is dealing with a future scenario, namely that of a society where IT is pervasive and present in every aspect of our lives. The researchers of PalCom have taken up the challenge of designing for the future.

Another challenge is to ensure internal collaboration and exchange in a very large, multidisciplinary project. With 100 researchers and professionals involved in PalCom it demands an elaborate strategy to ensure fruit collaboration among participants from many different disciplines.

Four principles are at the core of PalCom’s design approach:

  • Cyclic development
  • Interdisciplinary
  • End-user involvement
  • Knowledge sharing
