The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) and the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative is pleased to offer the workshop: Spaces in Space: Optimizing Behavioral Health and Cognitive Performance in Confined Environments.

The workshop highlights the many opportunities to re-think the design of personal environments for their potential to keep us well and enhance cognitive performance. The spaces we design for space travel are new frontiers for health.

Invited participants include leading engineers, academic researchers (in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, ecology, and AI), behavioral healthcare industry innovators, interior designers, architects, and entrepreneurs developing new technologies. 

The workshop is FREE & will be available as a live stream.  You will need to register for the live stream.

Can’t make it? A video will be available on the TRISH website at a later date.

Partnering with NASA through a cooperative agreement, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) funds transformative human health technologies to predict, protect, and preserve astronaut physical and mental wellness during deep space exploration missions. We fund high-risk, high-reward, human health and performance solutions that can be adapted for use in space.

With society at the cusp of interplanetary civilization, the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative takes a unique approach to humanity’s horizons. We are actively building the technologies, tools, and human experiences of our Sci-Fi Space Future. The philosophy of “democratizing access to space exploration”—bringing moonshots and starshots into the purview of hackers and makers—courses through our work, and guides both our research platform and our extensive STEAM outreach efforts.
