World-leading interdisciplinary research in this field is currently being conducted in the UK at the Institute for Behavioural Neuroscience, together with The Bartlett Faculty of The Built Environment. Both institutions are part of University College London (UCL) and are internationally top-ranked for their research excellence in both neuroscience and architecture. Cutting-edge research can create unique opportunities for Sweden as the first nation in the world implementing new principles in urban planning.

In this session we will dig into this new research area and listen to Ms Isabelle Sjövall, who will tell us more about her research and results.
