Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design
The Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design [CIID] is a new initiative happening in Denmark. The two key promoters of this initiative are Heather Martin and Simona Maschi [both former professors at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea]. The initial team consists of qualified interaction designers from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

“The aim is to create a high profile design institute, which is small but dynamic and which interfaces with academia and industry. The institute will become an international setting for new thinking in design and technology in Copenhagen. The institute will encourage multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary learning, teaching and consulting in Interaction Design. We imagine that people both from the academic and the industrial world will come to Copenhagen to work with us on innovative products, services and technology for the future. The institute aims to become an international centre of excellence in interaction design and innovation by 2010. The uniqueness of the institute is that it will incorporate an integrated plan of teaching, research and consulting – all in the same building, at the same time allowing them to influence each other in their vision and philosophy.”
