NEWSLETTER #3  l AUGUST 2022  

eMOTIONAL Cities was created with the vision to understand, assess and evaluate health outcomes of different built environments in urban areas, using new methods and tools that capitalize on the synergistic combination of urban planning and design, neuroscience, as well as technology and data science.

This approach will produce novel city mapping with geospatial data (physical, environment, socioeconomic, mobility, outdoor comfort and health determinants) combined with cognitive and emotional representations of the people who experience and navigate such an urban environment.

A set of cities across Europe (mention cities), with different genesis, evolution, designs and policies, will be a part of geographic case studies, and a clinical study, with elderly population at risk of developing dementia, will be proof of concept that urban planning can help people with vulnerabilities to move in space.
