The aim of Health CASCADE is to foster the next generation of highly-trained research leaders to develop evidence based guiding principles, novel tools and new technologies to make co-creation an effective tool to fight complex public health problems through a European Joint Doctoral Program.
Global health challenges confront us all as individuals and communities – from obesity to pandemics, cancer to dementia – magnified by climate change and increasing inequality. These challenges are complex problems arising from multiple interconnected factors and feedback loops, resistant to existing public health programs. We need new ideas and new approaches such as co-creation. By bringing together citizens, academics, businesses, and civil organizations, the project aims to co-create effective solutions to these complex problems.
Health CASCADE’s multidisciplinary international expert team will work together with the 15 young researchers to develop new evidence based guiding principles, methodology, novel tools, and new technologies to make co-creation an effective tool in fighting complex public health problems.
