At the Meaningful Interactions Lab (mintlab) we strive to perform excellent Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research from the perspectives of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. We specialise in the domains of media, health, and emerging technologies. Our mission is to design meaningful interactions with technology. Key in our approach is actively involving users in a reflective research and design process. We envision and create valuable interaction designs that make a difference in people’s future lives. Mintlab is a research group within the Institute for Media Studies (IMS) of the faculty of Social Sciences at KU Leuven, and is affiliated with imec.
