7 Experiences – Aalto Experience Summit to endorse Experience Research as a multidisciplinary research field

Human experiences are studied in many disciplines, but the related theories, methodologies and concept definitions are not actively shared across the disciplinary borders. Our goal is to establish a more solid multidisciplinary foundation for experience research. How to characterize experiences, how to communicate them to others, how to understand others’ experiences, how to create new experiences? Methods and theories from different fields of sciences and art are needed in this enterprise.

7 Experiences Summit is a place for different disciplines to meet and share perspectives to experience research.
