Individual Research Projects WP2

The 4 Doctoral Candidates (DCs) working with this WP aim to bring predictability of human reactions to passive and hybrid solutions onto a next level

DC1. Steady-state neurological reaction and perception

OBJECTIVE: To identify significant biometrics and specific thresholds/trends capable of assessing/predicting human multi-domain comfort status

SECONDMENTS: (i) La Rochelle Université; (ii) Huygen Engineers & Consultants; (iii)Danmarks Tekniske Universitet

DC2. Acute dynamic physiological reaction and perception

OBJECTIVE: To identify physiological (mainly skin and core body temperature but also heart rate) and perceptual responses and how they relate to each other’s under acute dynamic environmental conditions and to create a simple model of dynamic IEQ control

SECONDMENTS: (i) UNIVERSITAETSKLINIKUM AACHEN; (ii) Universidad de Murcia

DC3. Human perception in outdoor and transitional urban spaces

OBJECTIVE: To define a multi-sensory human comfort model predicting overall perception for the outdoors relaying upon a comprehensive
urban environmental monitoring architecture and the definition of proper urban descriptors.

SECONDMENTS: (i) The Cyprus Institute; (ii) UNIVERSITE CATHOLIQUE DE LOUVAIN; (iii)UNIVERSITAETSKLINIKUM AACHEN

DC4. Non-adapted and adapted cognitive performance

OBJECTIVE: Examine combined effects of components of indoor environment and their impact on human cognitive performance, the role of modifying responses and behaviour, and the underlying mechanisms including adaptation.

SECONDMENTS: (i) University of Perugia; (ii) UNIVERSITAETSKLINIKUM AACHEN; (iii) EValTech
