In this Research Meet TU/e researchers from various disciplines will update you on the latest research insights concerning health, vitality and wellbeing in our built environment. Some inspiring use cases connecting people, health, well-being, vitality, environment and technology will be presented.

Life expectancy increases each year. Keeping our ageing society healthy and vital is important from a human, social and economic perspective. Stimulating physical and psychological wellbeing to keep people fit and happy is one of the current societal challenges. Challenges such as preventing illnesses, like those related to dementia, and keeping people connected to their societal networks and to society in general, have to be addressed. Behavioral knowledge and in-depth research into human-technology interaction is essential to build the smart environments that optimize human happiness and inclusive societies.
