European expert platform for measuring human feelings and emotions

Objective

The objective of FEEL EUROPE is to create a European expert platform for the measurement of human feelings and emotions and thus to create the basis for novel research topics, technologies, cooperation and innovations across various applications and industrial branches.

FEEL EUROPE will bring together more than 30 experts from different disciplines such as scientists in medicine, biology, psychology, philosophy, neurology, materials science and engineers in biomedicine, architecture, telecommunication and acoustics, designers as well as experts from automobile, textile, light, sports and consulting industries.

Human feelings under discussion are comfort, wellness, effects of light, music, emotions, colours, nutrition, odour and the surroundings as well as pain, biorhythm and body language. FEEL EUROPE not only enable the European experts to discuss the scientific and technical possibility of measuring human feelings and emotions but also enables them to discuss the ethical and gender impacts e.g. is it considerable to measure feelings in the workplace or are there any differences between female and male feeling.

This project enables the European experts, with help of a very well organised workshop, to find and develop novel kinds of technical cognitive systems, which can understand the human behaviour and thus improve the Human Machine Interfaces. The achievements of the workshop will be published in a white paper. This white paper brings together the state of the art, novelties, ideas and possibilities in scientific, technologic and ethic aspects of measuring feelings and emotions from science, technology and ethics.
