This document presents the taxonomy developed as part of the FARSEEING project, which was led by work package 2 (WP2). This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial- ShareAlike 4.0 International License. To view a copy of this license, visit

The taxonomy is designed for two purposes:

  •  To characterise and classify technology-enabled interventions, such as those published in the literature. It is hoped that this will achieve easier comparison of technologies.
  •  To encourage authors of new interventions to report the intervention in such a way that it can be replicated and understood by others.

The hard copy of the taxonomy and the accompanying handbook presented here are complemented by an online tool, which can be found at The online taxonomy is an interactive tool, facilitating classification of interventions and incorporating definitions from the handbook, which will simplify the process of characterising and gathering information about technology-enabled interventions.
