e-Society - Healthcare and Everyday Information Services

The e-Society research group is involved in development and studies of enabling technologies for new everyday IT-based applications with an emphasis on internet-embedded residential and mobile services for the citizen, including e-government services and health care. The studies concern new IT-based services in the society from a human-centered perspective (consumer, citizen and user), with applications in home services for the citizen, electronic commerce, electronic media and publishing, and public sector services, all with a special concern for small and medium-sized enterprises. The research is intended to produce market insights, business ideas, testbeds and open source software, and to develop theoretical insights combined with human-centered solutions for high quality in use, demonstrated by world-class scientific results and industrial applications. Example projects and applications include ICT support for communication and information management for home healthcare teams, novel interaction technologies for everyday environments and internet-based public information services.

A major activity in this area has been sponsored by the Swedish Institute for Systems Development, SISU, as documented at the following site: http://www.skriver.nu/esociety/
