The Living Lab


To help make people’s lives better, you have to know them. To do that, you need to listen to them and work with them. That leads to understanding – and that’s where innovation begins. We are working with governments, healthcare professionals, thought leaders and families; building experiments that will help transform their cities, their communities and their lives.
