Human-Centred Technologies Research Centre
We research and communicate innovative technologies for people in different areas of life (e.g. work, education, leisure) with the aim of having a positive impact on health, knowledge transfer and the environment. Social innovations are thereby a prerequisite, a concomitant or a consequence. In any case, the focus is on people and their requirements.
Technical innovations aim at novel applications, extended interfaces, optimized processes or previously unused purposes for information and data. They are always based on a demand-oriented interaction between people and Engineering and Technology. We conduct research activities in these areas together with various population groups and organizations, as well as for social policy.
