Smart Spaces Driving Health and Wellness Outcomes

Cutting-edge technologies at the intersection of the internet of things, connected health, and smart buildings are providing an opportunity to rethink our relationship with wellness at home and work. On March 19, 2020, UVA Engineering’s Link Lab is hosting conversations on key research questions that will enable a “well” society, made possible by smart spaces. This Link Lab 2020 Research Day will assemble academic researchers, industry leaders, and government stakeholders to present the most promising ideas across three topics: Foundations of Smart Spaces and Sensors, Responsible Data Dynamics and Driving Wellness Outcomes.
