Abstract

Research on human–technology interaction has been concerned with assessing the experience of interacting with technology that is already in the process of being designed.

In this paper, we present our approach to the definition of the role of cognitive psychologists and cognitive ergonomists in the innovation process. We aim to define new concepts and methodologies that would help in the process. One example, taken from a research project from a Spanish consortium of universities and industries, is described
