Citizen Science 4 Health (29.10.-01.11.2023, Twente, Netherlands)

Pharaon will engage with citizens at the “Citizen Science for Health” event taking place from 29 October to 1 November in Twente, Netherlands.

Sefora Tunc, University of Twente, will present “Engaging Older Adults in Large-Scale Co-Design Activities for late-life loneliness: A Citizen Science Approach” under the Theme: Participatory Approaches.

The Citizen Science for Health event goes beyond a traditional conference set-up and embraces an interactive character. Besides keynote lectures by renowned experts and practitioners in citizen science and participative research in the fields of personal medicine, ethics, and public health, the stage will be open through Workshops, Solution rooms, Posters, and Showcases. The engagement of patients in health research has a long tradition, even though their impact on e.g. decision making on research questions, methodology, ethics, analysis and data management remain limited so far. Citizen Science and the involvement of patients in health research have a huge potential to contribute to innovative health research, as well as to society. Join us to shape this innovation!

When: 30 October 2023, 17:00 – 18:00

Where: University of Twente, Netherlands
