It focuses on the thematic axes of digital transition, ecological transition, public engagement, and health society, which encompass all citizen services through participation, awareness, and sharing, with the goal of improving the quality of social contexts.

The PhD program is based on the scientific production of Service Design, at the interdisciplinary convergence of design, psychology, management and engineering, computer science, social sciences, and policy-making.

The doctoral program focuses on two main areas: the digital transition and the ecological transition, which involve all citizen services through processes of participation, awareness, and sharing, with the goal of improving social contexts. Specifically, the Doctorate is developed along four thematic axes:
– the green transition;
– ⁠the digital transition;
– public engagement;
– ⁠the health society and healthcare services.
