We carry out research on the interaction between people and their surrounding environment and what this means for the design of technology, technological systems and organizations.
The teaching and research carried out at the Division of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology (EAT) pertains to knowledge about how people interact with, influence and are influenced by their environment. This includes technological systems, other people with whom we cooperate (organizations), and our physical surroundings. The research findings are used in the design of products and environments that people come in contact with in their daily lives in the workplace, at home and in the community.
Our goal is that people’s interaction with their environment should promote health, well-being, achievement and long term sustainability.
