At the Division of Ergonomics research is conducted with focus on industrial and healthcare-related work systems. The research assumes both an organizational and an individual perspective, aiming to create good physical and psychosocial working conditions, while contributing to operational efficiency.

Research and development projects are run in cooperation with companies and organizations and are sometimes carried out as assignments.
