Com&Tech Innovations Lab

Com&Tech Innovations Lab (CTI-Lab), founded in 2017, is an initiative of several researchers and professors at the University of Ottawa. The CTI-Lab is a space for research, experimentation and knowledge creation. We incorporate a participatory approach by collaborating to support the co-design of Information & Communication Technologies and to understand their uses. 

CTI-Lab's fields of expertise

  • The analysis of human/technology interactions using various qualitative methods (e.g. video-ethnography, visual methods, multimodal analysis of interactions).
  • The co-design of socially acceptable digital technologies. We study the design and use of several technologies such as artificial intelligence technologies, mobile applications, eHealth platforms, wearable or sensors devices.
  • The development of participatory design/co-design approaches. The CTI-Lab has several research projects based on the implementation of a co-design approach involving different stakeholders.
