A number of research projects are conducted in collaboration with representatives from the medical and health care in Sweden and Asia, and the mining and construction industry in Sweden. The common goal is to develop prototypes to demonstrate and evaluate personalisation functionality, reasoning and decision support that aim to increase ability and quality of activity performance in individuals and in teams of professionals. The ACKTUS platform is used as the research infrastructure for knowledge engineering, interaction design and evaluation studies with end users. ACKTUS is also a research project on end-user design and development, as well as on various knowledge representation and fusion topics, which serve the application projects.
