Theme at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies.

Layman's description

The theme investigates the digital transformation of work from the perspective of the individual workers and their interactions with digital systems and tools. Healthy and productive digital work environments can be enabled by incorporating ergonomics into the design and development processes for digital technology. The theme combines competences on technology development with those that focus on human aspects. Our aim is to establish a common terminology and to identify future research directions for novel methods and techniques for designing healthy and sustainable digital work environments.
