Aims of Center for Humans and Technology
We 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.
