Welcome to

Experience Research Society

A global community of academics, practitioners, and anyone interested in understanding experiences from different angles.

Introducing EXPRESSO

What do we do?

We foster cross-disciplinary collaboration around experiences to make an impact in science and society. For this purpose, we organize events, provide online discussion forums, and share information of experience research across disciplines.


It is hard to know what makes us happy. We believe understanding experiences allows us to understand good life. Through research into the fundamentals of experience we can promote wellbeing and thus make life happier.

Which experiences?

We differentiate from other experience-related communities by embracing all experience research fields: psychology, education, arts and design, technology, business, sociology, health – you name it.
