MUSA Urban Regeneration – Action “4P Phygital Platform”

The Action “4P Phygital Platform” will lead to the release of the Phygital (Physical + Digital) platform, a SAAS (Software as a Service) solution that favors the “Public–Private–People partnership” (4P), facilitating the collaborative shaping of sustainable urban regenerations policies and actions with an environment- and human-centered approach. The platform is conceived with an eco-systemic approach enabling the collection of objective environmental data (e.g. from sensors and databases) and subjective personal data in aggregated form (e.g., mobile devices, wearables, questionnaires). The combination of the physical environmental data and the personal\community experience over time enables a comprehensive understanding favoring decision-making at different scales of intervention. User-friendly data representation (from cartographic to eye-level views) fosters synergies between different disciplinary perspectives to support stakeholders’ confrontation and collaboration. A specific focus will be dedicated to the representation of data on the Phygital solution ‘Luminous Planning Table (LPT)‘, originally developed as part of the Departments of Excellence 2018-2022 initiative and now further developed within the MUSA project. 

The Action is developed in collaboration with the Università degli Studi di Milano (Dipartimento di Beni Culturali e Ambientali) – Task 1.3 “Digital Approach for Urban Regeneration” as a further development of the exp-EIA© (experiential – Environmental Impact Assessment) method.
