Creating a healthier and resilient world
Our vision is to deliver applied design research and concepts that are grounded in achieving healthy, sustainable, adaptive, and resilient outcomes for the future. We leverage impactful research in our four core research domains of Biophilia & Wellbeing, Regeneration & Sustainability, Ecology & Environment, and Society & Culture to make this vision a reality.
Our research has multiple sustainable, environmental, social, cultural, economic and health benefits for our research partners, organisations, and larger communities. We leverage our expertise in key research areas embedded in the Integral Design Framework to deliver impactful outcomes, enabling a sustainable and resilient future.
The Live+Smart Research Lab is one of Deakin University’s leading research labs, providing direct applied research for our global society. Unconstrained by traditional disciplines, the Live+Smart Research Lab pursues solutions, technologies, and experiences that enable individuals and communities to transform their lives for the better and improve the environment. The lab promotes an transdisciplinary research culture drawing from a world leading multidisciplinary team that brings together diverse areas of interest, expertise and inquiry.
“ Our team provides innovative research that informs the planning, design and creation of both built and natural environments that result in a healthy and resilient future for the planet, where our actions taken today leave a positive legacy behind for future generations”
Dr Phill Roös Associate Professor Director Live+Smart Research Lab
Beyond our research activities, the Live+Smart Research Lab builds partnerships around the world with colleagues, peers, key industry and government organisations to deliver achievable solutions. We establish communities of knowledge, centres of excellence, and develop prototypes and concepts that are grounded in achieving our vision
