Interaction Design Lab

The Interaction Design Lab (ID Lab) was opened in the School of Informatics in 2009 to develop a research, design and innovation unit in Estonia that promotes knowledge and skills in the field of interaction design. ID lab represents Estonia in the TwinTide research network funded by the European Union, the aim of which is to harmonize IT tool design and evaluation methodology practices and research activities in various fields of activity and specialties. The interaction design laboratory has an active team of researchers and practitioners led by Prof. David Lamas.

Current fields of research and activities

  • bridging the digital divide for mobile digital libraries
  • broad-based mobile interactions
  • textbook metaphor in extended learning environments
  • development of m-government services
ID lab has actively participated in more than 20 production sector innovation and development short projects. 
Main ID laboratory services:

  • initial identification of needs;
  • prototype development and evaluation;
  • usability studies and making development proposals.


The Laboratory of Interaction Design plays an important role in the teaching process of the School of Digital Technologies, coordinating the Human-Computer Interaction master's program, conducting an ever-increasing number of bachelor's and master's courses, and supporting the launch of various master's research projects. The ID lab team also conducts interaction design courses within the Tallinn University summer school and winter school.


Since November 2012, World Usability Day events have been held under the leadership of the interaction design lab. In addition, in 2014, regular seminars for professionals and interested parties in the field of interaction design were launched under the leadership of ESTCHI.
