Design of information systems (DESIGN)

The DESIGN group studies the design and use of information systems


Our research focuses on the design of information systems that will support users in their daily work and other activities, at work and at home. We have a multidisciplinary approach, combining technological and socio-cultural knowledge about design, use, and users. 


Our research focuses on how we can identify users' needs grounded in the activities into which the future information system will become a part. This requires a deep understanding of the use practices, i.e., the practices and activities constituting the context for the information system. At the same time, we need a solid understanding of technology and the technical possibilities that can be involved. The interaction between use and design, between understanding existing practices and suggesting future technical solutions, is the core of our research.
