CAVI is a research center at the School of Communication and Culture, department of Digital Design and Information Studies, in collaboration with department of Computer Science. CAVI was established in 2001 as an interdisciplinary Human-Computer Interaction research centre across the Department of Information Studies and the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University.
We work closely with external partners, for instance design agencies, architects, schools, technology providers, and other businesses. In the cultural computing field, we have worked with independent artists as well as cultural institutions, such as libraries and museums. Collaborating closely with external partners pushes us to take context seriously, and to make full-scale installations to be deployed in the real world.
We carry out research through design, making practical design experiments aimed at gaining insight into interaction design – design process, as well as interface and use. A majority of our researchers have a background in participatory design, which explains our concern with the contexts for which we design.
Thousands of visitors have guested CAVI throughout the years. Industry leaders, royal representatives as well as researchers, students, designers, architects, artists, schoolchildren and many others.
If you have a project or an idea where you think that a collaboration with CAVI could be mutually feasibly please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Google Maps does not reflect the "D" in the address. Therefore it is important to state that CAVI is found next to the parking lot behind the road facade which can be entered by vehicle between Aabogade 34 and Aabogade 36.
