Technologies in Practice is one of Scandinavia’s leading research groups at the intersection of IT and society. Based at the IT University of Copenhagen, we conduct qualitative studies of technologically mediated practices in organisations and everyday life.

We are an interdisciplinary group, with a shared interest in qualitative studies of technologically mediated practices. Our work is funded by the Danish Research Council, European Union's Horizon 2020 program, Carlsberg Foundation, Innovation Foundation, Novo Nordisk and the Velux Foundation.


We closely integrate our role as educators with our work as a research group. Our international faculty use insights from around the world in their teaching. Our teaching draws on disciplinary backgrounds such as information studies, history, anthropology, sociology, and critical computer science. We aim to help students address the critical questions arising at the intersection of society and technology.
