Welcome to HEI-Lab
The concept behind HEI-Lab is rooted in the framework of human-environment interaction, and looks at the mutual effects between human behavior and its contexts.
Our mission is to apply converging knowledge from Psychology and Design into a transdisciplinary scientific platform to study human behavior within this interchangeable view.
Digital technology following psychological principles and created with Design and Engineering processes is HEI-Lab’s signature. Our approach offers the opportunity to explore human behavior by digitally modelling its contextual environment. In the context of mental health care, it is part of an eHealth outlook that has been encouraged by leading political and health organizations (e.g., EC, WHO), and which has yet to be consolidated in the Portuguese context.
