We believe that in order to provide solutions that best improve the outcomes of any design project, we must draw from a broad pool of expertise. We are the only body that has endeavoured to build such a network with the specific goal of streamlining the flow of new scientific knowledge for the improvement of the built environment.
We have developed a standardised framework for delivering valuable insights for built environment projects. Our partners in established organisations around the world use this framework to translate their expertise into knowledge that directly impacts the design of spaces and places to create a better user experience.
How does one join the Human Metrics Lab?
Groups and individual researchers can apply to join the Human Metrics Lab online by articulating their field of expertise, specific interests and availability to carry out project-related work.
Why should one join the Human Metrics Lab?
Working with Hume through the Human Metrics Lab provides an opportunity to example real-world impact of research, activity that bolsters new funding applications. Additionally, the lab will support the publication of research carried out for projects in a number of journals that focus on behavioural and cognitive neuroscience in the built environment.
What are the outputs of the lab?
The lab provides guidance and templates for translational research carried out by our partners. By standardising outputs, we’ve created a clear and efficient workflow for researchers. When a project is first paired with relevant experts, we train them through the process and how to use our online platform to deliver the outputs.
These are some of the research organisations where our network of experts carry out their work
