In a digital era, the technology impacts, influences, assists and improve our life at different levels. The fields of psychology are increasingly facing the main issues concerned with evolving of technology at the service of human life. Specifically, psychological research has proposed a broad spectrum of different methodologies aimed at improving the general living conditions of people in various socio-economical contexts, i.e. work, family, school, interpersonal relations, health. This grounded set of scientific knowledge, professional practice and methodologies of intervention can be purposefully applied to the design and development of technologies that support the human psychological needs and compatible with everyone’s characteristics.

Specifically, the symposium focuses on technological solutions, mainly employing IT, software and hardware solutions to meet psychological needs.
