Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)

CSCW is an interdisciplinary research field that strives to understand the nature and requirements of cooperative work in order to design collaborative computational artefacts and technologies.

Collaboration post-its

CSCW is a broad field, which encompasses several different types of research. Ethnographic studies and other forms of qualitative, in-depth workplace studies have played and continue to play an essential role in the development of the field, but more design and technology-oriented research approaches are also a core part of CSCW.

In our research group, we have an interest in several different domains including health care, architecture, distributed work (global software development and global engineering), and making/hacking practices. We work closely together with industry partners of various sorts, where we together explore practical solutions while at the same time maintaining a strong focus on conceptual and methodological issues.
