“New Technologies and Changing Behaviours”

Summer School
June 17-22, 2018 – University Residential Centre of Bertinoro, Italy

Concept: Emerging smart and mobile technologies and behavioural intervention programmes provide the focus for understanding the role of technology in changing behaviours and preserving health and quality of life. PhD stu- dents 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. More information will follow soon.
