Externally financed R&D project (2017-2020)
H-SEIF stands for Human Systems Engineering Innovation Framework.
H-SEIF 1 was a research project aimed at developing new methods for human centred systems engineering.
The project was initiated by the University College of Southeast Norway (USN) with its NISE research group and SEMCON. The research partners are USN, AHO and NTNU. In addition, there were multiple industrial partners, with SEMCON leading the project.
H-SEIF 1 was followed by H-SEIF 2
Marianne Kjørstad – PhD
The project resulted in a PhD by Marianne Kjørstad, who had her dissertation at USN in 2022. See a complete list of publications from the project below.
A booklet was produced to communicate the results to a wider industrial audience. The booklet reports on tools, methods and perspectives explored and partly developed in the R&D project. It was created and edited by Palak Dudani (AHO), with project management by Andreas Wettre (AHO) and illustrations © On Board Innovations. Published by USN.
