CURE’s role within MINET is manifold. CURE brings in user experience methods which range from the measurement of different user experience factors to the measurement of emotions and eye gaze patterns. Furthermore, CURE will establish a bridge between the multidisciplinary MINET consortium and the HCI-community aiming for a stronger change of ideas and views.
