Objectives

  • To improve and increase the ergonomics knowledge for application in design
  • To improve the relationship between ergonomists and other actors involved in design product design, interaction design, engineering, marketing, management, sustainability, etc.
  • To improve communication and transfer of knowledge between the ergonomics fields for workers and ergonomics for consumers (from avoiding pain to gaining pleasure)
  • To improve knowledge transfer from ergonomics in design research to practice and increase feedback from the applications to the academic community.
  • To improve the relationship between ergonomists and other actors involved in design product design, interaction design, engineering, marketing, management, sustainability, etc.
  • To promote ergonomics in the design process.
  • To promote ergonomics in design to the public at large.

Structure

To implement the above objectives, this TC creates Working Groups such as :
