Link to practice & education

The expertise unit focuses on research and services that have the potential to contribute to community development in a changing, global society. This contribution can be situated on a micro level, like how to adapt technology to individual users, as on a macro level, like addressing the challenge to allow a growing number of people to live together in the context of global and ecological challenges.
