HOWLab is part of the Aragón Institute for Engineering Research (I3A), from the University of Zaragoza in Spain. We are composed by a multidisciplinary group of professionals attached to the Departments of Electronics and Communications Engineering and Design Engineering and Manufacturing, with different profiles: industrial and telecommunication engineering, computer science, industrial design and social sciences. We also have a tight collaboration with different local and regional institutions (City Council and Regional Government), healthcare institutions and hospitals, associations of elderly and people with disabilities (ATADES, Fundación Rey Ardid, Aragon Parkinson Association, etc.) and special education schools (Alborada, Los Pueyos, etc.). These relationships seek to encourage the research on the areas described above and also provide the assessment and support from their knowledge of the associations. The entities also participate in research projects ceding the use of their locations and collaborating with their users and professionals on the design and evaluation of technology; indeed this is the case in most of the research projects we participate where we usually manage real pilots.
