Ana Henriques, a researcher at the Interactive Technologies Institute working on the DCitizens project, travelled to Umeå University in Sweden, where Professor Teresa Almeida, an international collaborator of ITI, welcomed her. Her visit revolved around the Material Intersections lecture series, during which Ana delivered an open lecture, conducted a participatory workshop, and participated in a research seminar.

These sessions allowed them to disseminate their current research on establishing community-led ethical frameworks for HCI research. Additionally, the trip to Sweden provided an opportunity to promote the progress of the DCitizens Horizon Europe project on digital civics, which encompasses Ana’s work, among students and fellow researchers.
