"Extreme-design intends to positively impact the quality of life for people living in extreme environments."
Extreme-Design.eu is an international group for research and project, born in Europe.
We are researchers from a wide variety of fields who are looking for human-interaction solutions supporting cultural expression in extreme environments, particularly in outer Space.
The group joins the collaboration of: Thales Alenia Spazio, Politecnico of Milan University, Università di Torino, Mensch-Maschine-Systeme at TU-Berlin, yasmin (Leonardo/Olats);
and the support: Deutsch DAAD, ESA, ELGRA, COSPAR, DLR, IAA, MMS TU-Berlin, ILEWG.
Coordination: Dr.-Ing. Irene Lia Schlacht (PhD) is a researcher in Human Factors and Design for future innovations in extreme environments. She is coordinating the Extreme-Design.eu research group.
She has taken part as a crew member and principal experiment investigator in Moon and Mars mission simulations and ESA weightlessness missions.
She is a member of the IAASS Technical Committee for Human Factors & Performance for Safety, a Human Factors specialist for the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and the International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG) at ESA.
At the moment she is working at the DLR and HMKW University of Applied Science on a Human Factors research project for space application using holistic approach.
