Well-being and Health Research Group

The Well-being and Health Research Group emerges from the experience developed in the homonymous line of research of the Design Processes Group. The activity initiated in the research of design, applied to the health and well-being consolidates it as an autonomous research group in the year 2018 through the fulfillment of research projects, formative interventions, workshops, publications etc. that have an impact at a local and national scope.

Today it has consolidated its position as an Emerging Research Group (ERG), recognised by the Generalitat de Catalunya, with the publication of books, patent projects and numerous participatory activities.

In the last decade the health sector has incorporated responsibilities in the health sector including service design, participative processes, space and furniture design, design conception, visual communication, virtual reality, innovation, development etc. EINA possesses a wide expertise in this field with various design professionals and researchers that carry out regular collaborations with partners as Hospital de Sant Joan de Déu. In this context and with the expertise of its members having directed masters and Degree final projects related to the sector, the Well-being and Health Research Group has the double objective of meeting the market requirements and make a knowledge transfer in the sector.


The objectives of the research group according to the 2022-2025 strategic plan are:

  • To maintain and consolidate the academic results of the eBOOM, Espacio-Plataforma, RESTAURA and Nixi for Children projects.
  • To define research actions with local impact.
  • To disseminate research results in international environments.
  • To involve research and teaching of Design, Health and Wellbeing in EINA's undergraduate and master's research studies.
