The full title is Boundary Management between Life Domains to Increase Connectedness and Reduce Distraction for a Better Work-Life Balance.

Description

The project Boundary Management aims at increasing connectedness between people and reduce distraction through technology and others. This requires understanding of users’ life domains, borders, transitions, long-term strategies and short in-situ tactics as well as developing concepts and tools to smoothen the human-computer and human-computer-human interaction.

Approach

The approach is multifaceted and combines theoretical research and conceptualisations, empirical work with quantitative and qualitative insights, and conceptual and technological development of tools.
