Smart Products & Consumption Research Institute (SPOC)
From connected homes and companion robots to algorithms, e-health bracelets, intelligent fabric, and simple smartphones, smart products are becoming part of our lives. This unprecedented transformation of objects into intelligent devices has brought about both social and economic changes, and creates a challenge for all businesses (which is even more critical for businesses with little reliance on technology).
The Smart Products & Consumption Research Institute’s aim is to understand the impact that the rise of smart products has on business and society
The Smart Products & Consumption Research Institute has received funding from the Grand Est region in France, for research on companion robots for seniors and on smart agriculture. It has also received funding from the European Union via the VISTA AR Interreg Programme.
