|The human centred perspective
emphasises the interdependence between technology, knowledge and society.
Essentially the human centred vision is concerned with social cohesion
and with the central question: what does Information Society mean to the
citizen of Europe and what is required to make information and communication
technologies work for society and social cohesion?
Within the framework of human-centred thinking knowledge is envisioned
as the core resource for participation and social innovation. This knowledge
centred view of cohesion refocuses our view of information society from
technology transfer to knowledge transfer; from managing the technical
knowledge base to the building and continually servicing of the socio-technical
knowledge of society; from designing technical interfaces to building
tools for socio-communication.
