Healthy Choices and the social gradient invite you to our Autumn Seminar on User Involvement in Population Research – Participation and Dialogue.
How do we produce relevant and nuanced knowledge about what it takes to create a good life? How do we make sure that everyone is heard? And how can we work together to reduce the distance between knowledge and policy to ensure the knowledge is put into practice?
Healthy Choices and the social gradient invite researchers, other colleagues, policy makers, NGOs and others to discuss how we can create framework conditions for good lives. The seminar is held partly in English.
