PhD| Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Fellowship ‘Impact of evidence-based co-creation with youth’

deadline: 5 april 2021

Co-creation emerges from the participatory research paradigm as a promising strategy to increase the effectiveness and impact of health promotion and to address public health “complex” problems (such as the obesity epidemic) which are particularly resistant to resolutions, specifically in underserved populations. Such problems require stakeholders from all the nodes of the so-called Quadruple Helix (academia, industry, government and users) to engage in the co-creation of sustainable solutions. To ensure that co-creation is trustworthy, equitable, and improves the quality of research towards effective solutions to complex public health problems, systematic methodological research, training and protocols for co-creation are needed. The Health CASCADE project, a project financed out of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme of the European Commission, aims to foster the next generation of highly-trained research leaders in all aspects of evidence-based co-creation methodology to tackle the complexity of modern global health problems. For more information see www.healthcascade.eu.

As one of two PhD students in the project ‘Impact of evidence-based co-creation of the urban environment together with youth’, your challenge is to apply evidence-based methodology to co-create activity-friendly environments together with youth, urban planners, and other relevant stakeholders in the community in the community and to evaluate the impact of co-creating activity-friendly environments with youth. Within this project you will also collaborate with the other PhD students in the Health CASCADE project.

Your specific responsibilities will be to:

  • Facilitate meetings with youth in the community to co-create activity-friendly environments;
  • Develop a protocol for the impact evaluation of the co-creation;
  • Conduct the impact evaluation of the co-creation project;
  • Collect and analyze data: e.g. wearable sensors, observation, e-diaries;
  • Develop a toolbox for evidence-based methodology to co-create activity-friendly environments together with youth in the community;
  • Report on findings by publishing scientific articles;
  • Present findings at (inter)national meetings/conferences;
  • Write a PhD thesis;
  • Contribute to educational activities of the department and within the consortium.

PhD| Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Fellowship ‘Theory-based principles for co-creation in Public Health

deadline: 5 april 2021

Such problems require stakeholders from all the nodes of the so-called Quadruple Helix (academia, industry, government and users) to engage in the co-creation of sustainable solutions.

For more information see www.healthcascade.eu.

The project ‘theory-based principles for co-creation in public health’ aims to develop theory-based principles for conducting co-creation in public health and health promotion which should be integrated within the to-be-developed evidence-based co-creation methodology.

Your challenge is to draft theory-based principles based on literature reviews and qualitative research among relevant stakeholder groups. Subsequently, you will evaluate the theory-based principles in different co-creation research projects. You will closely collaborate with the PhD student responsible for drafting guidelines on how to deal with ethical issues and with PhD students responsible for co-creation research projects.

Your specific responsibilities will be to:

  • Draft theory-based principles;
  • Evaluate theory-based principles in different co-creation projects;
  • Analyze findings and adapt theory-based principles;
  • Report on findings by publishing scientific articles;
  • Present findings at (inter)national meetings/conferences;
  • Write a PhD thesis;
  • Contribute to educational activities of the department and within the consortium.
