Politecnico di Milano: Andrea Brambilla And Erica ISA Mosca Receive The “Valutare Premia” Award


Cerimonia di premiazione
Andrea Brambilla and Erica Isa Mosca were awarded first and second place in the third edition of “Valutare Premia”, the award given each year by the Lombardy Regional Council to young researchers who produce research with proposals of public benefit.

In his doctoral research, Andrea Brambilla developed and tested a multi-criteria evaluation tool for assessing quality and social, environmental and organisational sustainability in hospital health infrastructures. This user-friendly tool consists of indicators that are evidence-based, weighted and validated with international experts. The results of the research provide strategic indications that may be useful to hospital management and regional policy makers in making decisions for the construction of safer and more sustainable hospitals and community health facilities.

In her PhD thesis, Erica Isa Mosca developed and applied a performance assessment tool that, instead, enables measurement of social inclusion and accessibility of hospital facilities with objective and qualitative-quantitative indicators based on Inclusive Design and Universal Design. The final objective of the research is to support designers in developing environments that can guarantee the well-being of the greatest number of users.

Andrea and Erica, both born in 1992, after their PhD in Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, continue to carry out research as Postdoctoral Research Fellows at the Politecnico Design & Health Lab, coordinated by Professor Stefano Capolongo.
