ÅBO AKADEMI UNIVERSITY
Established 100 years ago, Åbo Akademi University operates currently in Turku and Vaasa. Our leading principles include diversity, openness, courage, sustainability and participation. In our capacity as the only Swedish-speaking university in Finland, we offer a wide range of educational options. We also conduct research in many fields, and our special focus areas are minority research, drug development and diagnostics, molecular process and material technology, and the sea.
During the course of our first century, we have grown into an internationally acknowledged research university with a unique role as the bridge between the university communities in Finland and the other Nordic countries.
Based at the Faculty of Education and Welfare Studies at the Vaasa Campus, Experience Lab is a R&D unit in the field of digital content and user experience. Our research activities focus on user experience and human centered design. Our research is based on a cross-scientific platform of human-computer interaction, human-robotic interaction, developmental psychology, and digital design research, always with application of the results at the forefront
Experience Lab has been involved in a number of R&D projects on national and European levels focusing on user experience and HCD in different contexts, including co-creative innovation processes and IoT applications. Our projects are based on our unique combination of lab and methods for user research in digital settings.
