Project description

This award will support research collaboration between Dr. Gabriella Spinelli and Tokyo University. The research will investigate how technology is used, rejected and adjusted to fit with the everyday life of the ageing users. Particular attention will be dedicated to the coping strategies used by elderly users with different cultural background when dealing with technologies. Coping strategies represent important starting point to foster innovation and inform inclusive designed artefacts.
