Innovate UK (formerly TSB) is to invest up to £1m in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) in the area of user experience (UX). The aim is to encourage new, enhanced forms of interaction between computing systems and the people who use them. Proposals may address technologies that contribute to these new forms, such as sensing information about the user, or those that improve specific types of experience, such as mobile and wearable devices. This requested innovation could be in underlying technologies, in combining emerging technologies, or in employing tools to improve the user experience.
Examples of such innovations include, but are not limited to:
- Sensors and Interactions
- Wearable Technology
- Mobile User Experience
- Multiple Device User Experience
- Brain Controlled Computing
- Combinations of Emerging Technologies
