Theme 3. Empowering the individual and the safe city community with design solutions
Coordination: Lilian Lechner (PSY), Remko Helms (INF) en Petru Curseu (MW)
Current technological and social changes raise important challenges and at the same time open many opportunities to increase the overall quality of life. New technologies not only facilitate communication and (social) information sharing, but also generate data to serve the purpose of optimizing the quality of decisions at both the individual level and community levels. Technology is a key enabler that facilitates social connectivity and social support. We therefore intend to focus on exploring the development and implementation of technological tools with the ultimate goal of having cohesive and thriving communities in which individuals feel safe and are healthy and informed.
