Twenty-seven lecturers from thirteen colleges across 3 disciplines are participating in the project and, through this medium, FUTUREquipped participants will be introduced to the latest developments in digitally enabled health and care and construction practices. They will be asked to collaboratively develop new teaching modules to integrate learnings from this pilot into respective college courses.

collaboration and supporting partners to identify, develop, co-design and deliver transformative digital innovations to improve health and care.


Smart Housing brings together the domains of technology-enabled health and care, augmented/ virtual reality, advanced construction, off-site technologies, sensor technology, and data.


DHI and the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSCI) will act as hubs to deliver the programme. Digital, robotic and off-site construction technologies are available in CSIC’s Innovation Factory in Hamilton, whilst the DHI will give the project participants access to the Demonstration and Simulation Environment (DSE). The DSE will allow them to test and showcase emerging health and care technologies, and simulate the integration of these technologies and data flows.
