INREMO is a resource network for the fostering and support of innovation in design and research of digital interactive representations and models. Funded by the Research Council of Norway within the VERDIKT (Core Competence and Value Creation in ICT) program, the network is constituted by universities, university colleges, research centers as well as private actors in industry, that together aim at influencing both national and international policies and research strategies in regard to the development of digital representational means.
The INREMO partners are concerned with interactive digital representations as a contemporary means for conceptual understanding and interpretation in society. The use of digital representations in contemporary society is pervasive. The ways in which different phenomena or ideas are represented in digital multimodal displays, such as simulations or models, influence the way in which such phenomena and ideas can be interpreted. Furthermore, the manner in which those representations afford interactivity will also impact on how concepts are understood. Therefore, researching design and implementations of interactive digital representations and models is of great relevance for a broad range of sectors, from education to media and communication.
Through the organization of seminars, creative work meetings, and a communication network, INREMO represents a platform for:
- the development of new ideas for research projects and design
- the dissemination of research results and academic discussions
- contributing to the scientific understanding of individual and collaborative interactions with digital representations
- forming new constellations of collaboration both at the national and international level
- providing input to and enriching discussions on research policy within the domain of interactive representations and models
