Lessons learned from the Hush City project”.
    Her publication track record is open access at http://www.antonellaradicchi.it/portfolio/publications/.

  • Dr Radicchi holds a position as a Senior Research Associate in the Society and Nature Department at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, where she manages the EU-funded project EU-Citizen.Science, leading a consortium of 23 partners across 14 European countries. Since 2016, she also has worked as Senior Research Associate at the TU Berlin and as External Expert Reviewer for the European Commission Research Executive Agency.

    Dr Radicchi has earned international recognition for creating Hush City, an award-winning citizen science project, which resolves a gap at the European policy level by involving people in identifying, assessing and planning quiet areas, as a measure to reduce noise pollution in cities. 
    Hush City has been adopted by the Municipality of Berlin and Limerick for the development of the Plans of Quiet Areas. Due to its impact on environmental monitoring and public policy, Hush City is featured in technical reports issued by the European Commission.

    She is a Member of the Marie Curie Alumni Association, a Member of the European Citizen Science Association and the Italian Citizen Science Network. She also is a Member of the Committee Governance and Citizen Rights – Participation of the Italian National Institute of Urbanism. 

    She is a licensed architect and hold a PhD in Urban Design and Territorial Planning (MIT/University of Firenze) with over ten years of professional experience in Germany, Italy and the US.

    Thematic expertise:

    • urban environmental planning of factors affecting health and well-being (quiet areas, noise and its interplay with artificial light, and odours); 
    • sustainable urban models (walkable cities); 
    • citizen science and societal engagement;
    • digital technology, such as mobile apps and digital platforms, applied to participatory environmental monitoring, data collection and planning processes.
