The ATHENE (Assisted Technologies for Healthy living in Elders: Needs Assessment by Ethnography) project is funded by the Technology Strategy Board under its Assisted Living Innovation (ALIP) programme.

We are holding a master class at the 13th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (ECSCW) in September 2013. We will explore solutions to the challenges of understanding the assisted living needs of older people in domestic settings, and ways for involving them and their carers in the co-production of assisted living technologies and services. The aim is to develop an appreciation of the benefits and the various practical issues involved in facilitating a ‘bricolage’ approach to the dependable co-production of assisted living technologies. There will be a strong practical focus with an emphasis on active participation.

The master class will be of value to people involved in the design and development of assisted living technologies, health and social care professionals involved in planning, management and delivery of assisted living services, CSCW and social science researchers, and commercial researchers and consultants working in the field.

Comprehensive notes will be provided and other relevant material will be available on the website (<>).

The presenters – from Queen Mary University of London, Warwick and Lancaster Universities, and Barts Health NHS Trust – are particularly associated with developments in methodologies for the study of domestic environments and practices associated with the participative design and co-production of technologies.
