Enabling ICT

Enabling ICT has a broad base in LTU's research resources within the information and communication field. Together, we drive the development of new ICT-based knowledge and applications in the areas of e-health, smart regions, data centers and cloud services.

Information and communication technology (ICT) is expanding rapidly and the need for research is increasing. ICT has infinitely many applications in society and business, and the requirements for accessibility, usability, reliability and safety are huge.

Within Enabling ICT we gather LTU's research resources related to ICT in order to address the research questions both in depth and from a multidisciplinary perspective. A multidiciplinary research approach facilitates new ways of exploring research questions as well as inovation.

Enabling ICT focuses on increasing and improving the application areas and usability of ICT. This is made possible through ambient ICT for everyone in all situations and contexts and addresses the context-integrated technology with multimodal interaction.
