The Interact team (formerly Sociology, Ergonomic Psychology, Language Sciences and Design), directed by Françoise Détienne and Christian Licoppe, is a faculty group from the i3 research laboratory (CNRS UMR 9217) of the Economics & Social Science department at Télécom Paris. It brings together the skills of 9 professors & associate professors and 3 CNRS researchers in sociology, ergonomic psychology, language sciences and design.
The animation of the team is structured around the Interact research seminar.
The research carried out by Interact is firmly embedded in innovation issues:
supporting innovation with creativity and participatory approaches and the study of appropriation and uses. INTERACT relies on a combination of methods—interaction analysis, analysis from the subject’s point of view, participatory methods—to make use situations visible. The team organizes its work, structured around ANR and H2020 programs, into four themes:
The Interaction and activity theme focuses on understanding the organization patterns of human interactions, especially in environments with a high digital technology component. Research projects study the organization of communication exchanges in “fragmented ecologies”, the interactions in institutional and professional environments, where forms of speech maybe constrained, and the interactions between humans and virtual agents and robots.
The Collaboration and Communities theme aims to understand and equip design and collaboration activities, understood as activities that are productive, targeting the co-development of a physical or digital artifact, constructive, targeting the co-development of knowledge in an interaction and socio-relational, targeting the regulation of emotions and the development of a collective approach.
The Mobility theme analyzes the in situ practices of technology-driven mobility: behavior linked to the new forms of mobility in urban settings, taking into account attention, risks and constraints, shared mobility, their use and appropriation, new mobile services and mobility in a transnational context, such as migrants and diasporas.
The Design and Creativity theme focuses, with a non-deterministic view of creativity, on analyzing and understanding the socio-cognitive, emotional and technical processes involved in design, as well as experimenting with new situations, methods and devices for creativity.
