Testbed KTH facts

Testbed KTH is located in a building permit free residence area in one of Einar Mattsson's three plus-energy buildings at KTH Campus Valhallavägen. During the rent period it will consist of four apartments with private sleeping rooms and barthrooms, and shared kitchen and living room. There is also an office and basement with installations that is accessible for tenants.

There are currently around 15 ongoing research projects in KTH Live-In Lab, of which a handful interacts with the tenants. Tenant can sometimes be asked to participate in workshops, share their experiences, give feedback, etc. No tenant has to be part of any project, but we hope that the participation is of mutual interest. Before any research project starts, tenants will be asked to sign an informed consent. So tenants always knows what R&D that is ongoing, and can choose to participate or not.
