Participatory design (PD) emerged in the 60ties as a result of labor unions’ reaction against social, political and economic changes introduced by technology in the workplace. The PD approach, rooted in a Scandinavian philosophy on system design emphasized the collaboration between designers and workers in a process aimed at improving the quality of working life.

Today Participatory Design methodologies influence Human Computer Interaction (HCI) research and practice, and it has stimulated an increased interest that expands HCI disciplinary boundaries. Moreover, the term ‘participation’ is commonly used within a wide range of academic disciplines and public policy areas, including participatory art, participatory action research, participatory democracy, participatory culture, and participatory journalism.

At KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and The Department of Computer and Systems Sciences DSV at Stockholm University (SU) they have taught participatory design methods in numerous interaction design courses over the years. However, they would like to establish a more direct contact with organizations and companies in the Stockholm region which have an interest in PD so we can start an exchange of experiences and working methods.

In this context, SU and KTH, in collaboration with Kista Science City and researchers from the Interactive Institute, Konstfack and FOI, would like to invite you to participate in a one-day seminar/workshop on Participatory Design.

The ambition with this event is to provide local actors interested or already working with PD, with a platform for exchange between practitioners and researchers.

We view this workshop as a key opportunity for the development of our courses and programs, identification of new research cases and an exchange where researchers can provide companies and organisations outside academia with conceptual tools to identify and analyze critical aspects that are involved in participatory design projects.

Tyck till om drönare!

Nu händer mycket kring drönare, och vi på Kista Science City, tillsammans med Stockholms stad och Luftfartsverket kommer från och med 2023 delta i ett treårigt europeiskt projekt som syftar till att förbereda städer till storskalig drönartrafik. En del av projektet handlar om att ta reda på vad Stockholmare tycker kring drönare – vilka use cases vill ni se, i vilka områden m.m.
