Coordinator: INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDIES (INSTITUT FUR HOHERE STUDIEN)
The study combines specialist expertise in public health with epidemiological and social science methods. Public health expert identify key areas relevant to policy and define areas for research, while the social scientists develop and refine a wide range of sociological measurement tools and techniques. This combination will provide new insights into an underresearched but extremely important issue.
EXPECTED RESULTS AND OUTCOMES
HITT-CIS will bring concrete benefits by providing recommendations to improve public health policies and interacting with national and international stake-holders by: disseminating findings within each country and to EU policymakers and international researchers; capacity building through training of researchers; identifying policy implications based upon research evidence.
