Abstract: Framed within the participatory design perspective and the Socially Responsible Design approach, we
believe that design has a responsibility towards society (Papanek, 1985) and should involve all actors. In our
view, the preparation of a new research proposal should therefore always start from a multi-actor
perspective. This paper describes how different mapping sessions with all stakeholders (patients, nursing
staff, doctors, companies, policy makers) were organised to develop a eHealth research project, dealing with
the creation of smart textiles used for self-management in chronic diseases (Textures for Care). This mapping
tool, self-developed in the MAP-it-project, brings all stakeholders to an equal level, both verbally as well as
visually, thus enriching the communicative possibilities. The mapping toolkit creates a common language
between participants with different profiles, backgrounds and expertise who not necessarily share the same
