The research initiative involves many researchers from different departments and research groups at Roskilde University through a shared interdisciplinary research and educational collaboration.

Purpose and strategy

  • by carrying out joint research projects across research groups and departments
  • hereby also supporting the development of new graduate and PhD programmes targeting the HumTek area

Three main areas

The research initiative addresses three issues/themes. Common to all three themes is a concern for the ethical aspects, through which researchers can explicate their reasons for and opinions on research activities and findings. Two of the themes refer to application areas (“Development and design of socio-technical systems” and “Aesthetics, experience and learning“), the third theme cuts across application areas (“Design as a scientific method“).
