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. This expertise unit provides scientific, methodological and statistical support: for internal research, in the context of national and international projects and as a service to external organizations like SMEs and multinationals.

We provide direct input to the Applied Psychology & Technology course and shapes different courses within the Department of Applied Psychology. It furthermore offers the opportunity for internships and support student research in the form of bachelor dissertationss.
