Co-creation is a central concept within Certec. In co-creation, new technology and new design concepts are developed with the aim that all people can participate in and contribute to society.

Universal design is about designing a society for all – which is important for Certec. Universal design has emerged in architecture and design as an effort to reach all people regardless of their conditions.
