The focus of BISS is at applying behavioural insights to intervention design. We will work in the area of vaccination and will develop several interventions to increase vaccine uptake. In BISS, PhD students and vaccination program managers from WHO member states will work and learn together.
We invite doctoral students from psychology, communication, public health or related areas to apply. Experience or a dissertation project in the area of prevention or infectious diseases is not necessary, but helpful.
During BISS, for each PhD student there will be the chance for a consultation to discuss his or her doctoral thesis and related questions with one of the teachers. Additionally, BISS will deliver state of the art research and intervention approaches. Participants will have the chance to build a network with global professionals and other PhD students from the WHO European region.
