Your feedback will contribute to the development of the project and the generation of new knowledge for design research.

There are no special skills needed. Design research needs real and honest inputs from people like you. After trying our experimental installations, you’ll be asked to answer a few questions in French and/or English.

To join us, sign up to receive updates about our user participation sessions for projects covering artificial intelligence, cultural heritage, interactive exhibitions and more.
