We conduct research in cooperation with partners from industry and practice and with support from research funding agencies such as the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Commission for Technology and Innovation.


Our nine sections work in close cooperation with other research units, including other specialist sections, the IAP Institute for Applied Psychology, other schools of the ZHAW and universities.

Strategic priorities

With their know-how in teaching and research, the sections contribute towards solving individual and societal issues in the following areas:

  1. Mental health and well-being
  2. Experience and behaviour in the context of social and technological innovations
  3. Dealing with risks and decision making
  4. Diversity of human development, forms of work and life
