Aims of Center for Humans and Technology
The overall aim of the Center for Humans & Technology is to foster and enhance high-quality multidisciplinary scientific research at the intersection of humans and technology, and to translate fundamental research insights into viable applications, services, and policies.
The Center for Humans & Technology is your single-point of entry for Humans & Technology related research at TU/e
- to enhance technological developments - by taking the human perspective into account - in collaboration with technological fields at TU/e;
- to realize further synergy between the Humans & Technology related groups at TU/e in order to foster cross-disciplinary approaches towards the design and development of improved technology;
- to open up new opportunities for research funding with partners in the Brainport area and beyond, both private and public.
Interacting research approaches
Both research approaches should not be interpreted as independent of each other; they interact via feedback loops. Understanding the impact of technology on humans and society leads to improved adaptive and engaging technologies, where the impact of these improved technologies on humans and society needs to be analyzed. Ultimately such cycles should lead to optimized technology, implemented in a responsible and acceptable way.
