The challenges

I consider three main challenges in research and education:

To contribute to social innovation by the design of localized personal technologies that can be better integrated into people’s daily life.

To build on a broader systemic scale towards better design solutions that consider not only a single user, but the entire structure of relationships between users, organizations, and culture.

To enable users (community) and institutions to play an active role in Industry 4.0 as new advances in information and communication are shaping our daily life in an accelerated fashion.
