Life as a Service (LAAS) is a collaborative network and research platform that invents tomorrow’s cities and landscapes byholistically connecting digital services to human values. The LAAS research programme provides an open research network and novel interdisciplinary laboratory for sustainable living, promoting future-oriented services in the context of a digitised society. The programme examines current and future urgencies together with the latest technology trends in 11 areas of human activities and explains how these can augment services that will transform life in urbanised areas and cities. We formulate briefs and conceive of ‘alternative futures’ as part of a process of designingand conducting future visioning to identify priorities and guidelines for inventing transformative services.
