MuSIC framework

The research program is divided into 5 Work Package (WPs).

Research is divided into 2 WPs: WP2 deals with Understanding and predicting human reactions, whilst WP3 is based on Human-centric building and community related solutions. Therefore, 4 DCs (DC1-2-3-4 under the umbrella of WP2) are focused on specific human responses to a variety of stimuli provided under different conditions. While, the other 6 DCs (DC5-6-7-8-9-10 under the umbrella of WP3) work on projects dealing with solutions at different scales and different background(ranging from multi-sensory building concept solutions for night- and daytime, over advanced passive and hybrid control solutions to urban scale solutions).

Their research activities will concern both indoor and outdoor built environments, experimental implementations, modelling analyses and tools, up to the multidisciplinary cooperation at cross-DC level while conceiving

  • the new generation of building interfaces based on perception awareness and potential for optimization, in terms of energy saving and wellbeing
  • the innovative solutions for envelope and HVAC concepts including passive and active measures for improved satisfaction, well-being, health and energy efficiency.

The other WPs are: WP1 devoted to Management, Recruitment, Dissemination; WP4 designed for Scientific, Technological Activities and Joint Transferable Skills Training; and WP5 dedicated to Communication and Public Engagement.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation program under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie (G.A. n. 101073357).
