  • Enaction is one of the possible ways of organizing knowledge and one of the forms of interaction with the world. The first definition of Enaction has been introduced by (Bruner 1966,1968) in association with the other two ways of knowledge organization: Iconic and Symbolic. The second was by Francisco Varela and Humberto Maturana.

    Enactive knowledge is the one that comes through action and it is constructed on motor skills, such as manipulating objects, riding a bicycle or playing a sport. The Enactive knowledges of entities are the ones acquired by doing.

    The aim of the research on Enaction is the construction of Enactive interfaces, interactive systems that organize and transmit this particular type of knowledge. Multimodal interfaces are good candidates for the creation of Enactive interfaces because of their coordinated use of Haptic, sound and vision. Such research is the main objective of the ENACTIVE Network of Excellence, a European consortium of more than 20 research laboratories that are joining their efforts for the definition, development and exploitation of Enactive interfaces.
