Human Behaviour Council

Understanding people is at the core of so much digital technology. We are helping to bring the research to life.

About the council

UX. Data. XR. So much of what the digital and tech industries do is fuelled by human understanding. Only by understanding more can we design better systems and create better products.

The Human Behaviour Council explores the latest research methods, bringing them to life for the benefit of BIMA members.
