The EU-funded PreventIT project invites researchers at the beginning of their career to an international Summer School where they will learn about state-of-the-art solutions, current trends, novel approaches in the areas of behaviour change theory and taxonomy, co-design, user engagement, digital technologies, service models and sensitive data management.

PhD students and junior researchers from a variety of disciplines (e.g. behavioural science, computer science, engineering, human-computer interaction) will be exposed to relevant topics such as how to:

  • Apply evidence and theory in development and evaluation;
  • Engage users, without which the most impressive technologies will be of little use;
  • Evaluate the quality and ethics of products;
  • Implement digital technologies at scale to maximise their potential in improving global health.
