The human centred perspective emphasises the interdependence between technology, knowledge and society. 

Essentially the human centred vision is concerned with social cohesion and with the central question: what does Information Society mean to the citizen of Europe and what is required to make information and communication technologies work for society and social cohesion? 

Within the framework of human-centred thinking knowledge is envisioned as the core resource for participation and social innovation. This knowledge centred view of cohesion refocuses our view of information society from technology transfer to knowledge transfer; from managing the technical knowledge base to the building and continually servicing of the socio-technical knowledge of society; from designing technical interfaces to building tools for socio-communication.
