Opportunities and Challenges at the Interface of Computer Science and Consumer Sciences

What is Consumer Informatics?

Prof. Dr. Gunnar Stevens

“Consumer Informatics is the systematic, methodologically guided investigation and design of information and communication technologies to support the household economies and everyday practices of consumers as well as their appropriation and social embedding.” – Stevens et al. 2019

Prof. Dr. Alexander Boden

“Digital services and products are increasingly affecting everyday consumer life and changing our consumption practices. A holistic understanding of these phenomena not only enables the design of innovative ICT solutions, but also the consideration of indirect effects on issues such as sustainability, inclusion and consumer protection”.
