Our partner, Danmarks Tekniske Universitet – DTU has hosted an internal webinar (only for eMOTIONALCities’ partners) in February, 25th 10h-12h CET where, beyond presenting their plan for mobility and health data collection in Copenhagen, an external speaker, Zhaoxi Zhang, a Ph.D. student from the University of Aarhus (Denmark), is going to share her experience with health data collection in Copenhagen.
eMOTIONAL Cities are glad to invite you for the Annual Meeting that will take place on November 23rd at 9h30 (Lisbon time) in Great Hall of the Rectory of the University of Lisbon (Portugal).
This event, addressing the theme eMOTIONAL Cities: Debate on the future of urban health, will include the participation of:
- Angela Million | Director of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the Technical University (TU) Berlin
- Miguel Telo de Arriaga| Head of the Healthy Lifestyles Division (DGS)
- Paula Castro| Director of CIS-IUL
- Mário Vale | Professor IGOT-ULisboa, CEG-Associated Lab TERRA
- Susana Macedo | Clean&Safe – Turismo de Portugal
This event will be held in person and broadcast live through the link: https://youtu.be/iMirrs003G8
On the 1st of September, a Researcher and Postdoctoral Fellow at Lisbon University, Diego Mora participated in the virtual EEG Symposium ‘Analytical Approaches and applications’ as a representative of eMotional Cities project. Diego’s presentation encompassed the unraveling emotions across the urban environment with EEG.
The “Open co-design workshop on next generation tools to manage ALS and MS” took plane on June 3rd and follows a series of two previous events opened only to the project’s consortium members aimed at exploring and defining the BRAINTEASER stakeholders’ ecosystem, the user’s needs and profiles and the potential clinical use of the project’s technology. During the open co-design workshop, the initial BRAINTEASER technical solution was presented. The external experts and the audience was involved in a collaborative and participative discussion on clinical unmet needs, disease course, clinical practice and new emerging research on ALS and MS to assess the BRAINTEASER solution and propose possible refinements.
The project kick-off meeting took place on April 8th and 9th, during which the general features of the project were presented, as well as the nine workpackages (WP). On the second day there were also presented the other Urban Health Cluster projects, namely ENLIGHTENme, WELLBASED, HEART, RECETAS and URBANOME.
The Environmental Sensors Workshop took place on March 12th and aimed:
1) Discuss the optimal solutions to collect environmental data from existing infrastructure, sensors grids, and open data already available in the involved cities (i.e. Lisbon, Madrid, Turin, and Pavia);
2) Find the best solutions to enhance and integrate environmental data infrastructures with novel sensors;
3) Define synergies and collaboration paths with other projects such as eMOTIONAL Cities, 4) Outline the strategies and methods to define the “personal exposure” to pollutant for each patient so to integrate it into our AI models.
