UTOPIA is a Scottish research project investigating the design and development of computer-based technology for older people. It is formed from a partnership of research groups at four universities (Dundee, Glasgow, Abertay and Napier). This website describes the part played by the group at Glasgow University and the particular sub-projects on which it is concentrating.

More information about UTOPIA can be found on this site's Overview page, and on the main UTOPIA site (in Dundee).
