The HTI group takes part in multiple cooperations. These cooperations form an important part of our multidisciplinary field of research. These include:
- Eindhoven School of Innovation Studies (ECIS):
A good part of our research is focussed on the acceptance of innovative technologies. Placing the human in the middle our research encompasses many different aspects that can make or break the acceptance of a novel technology. These include, but are not limited to research focussing on human factors, public acceptance, and ambient intelligence for instance. HTI is one of the 3 research groups that together shape the ECIS school of innovation studies.
- Intelligent Lighting Institute:
The Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) clusters the strengths of six TU/e departments in the field of intelligent lighting. ILI develops new applications and provides the scientific proof that these applications will do what they promise to do. This encompasses fundamental research on lighting systems, interaction with those systems, and psychological effects of such systems. ILI's counterpart association (ILIA) is an organisation and network where long-term strategic cooperation enables companies and knowledge institutions to facilitatie innovations in intelligent lighting through an open innovation network and physical testbeds. HTI forms one of the core research competencies within ILI, and participates in several of its program lines.
- 3TU centre of Excellence on Human-Technology Interaction:
This collaboration focussing on the human side of technological design between the three Dutch Technical Universities (TU Delft, Twente University, and TU/e) is in the process of being formed and we are exited to be part of this collaboration. One of the first accomplishments is the organization of the Winter schools.
