Summary of research topic and field
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) is becoming increasingly important in promoting health promotion and prevention. PhD candidates would be included in existing UP FVZ in the field of ICT for health promotion (eg. PreconNet, 4Steps). Candidates would develop ICT tools and approaches to promote health promotion and prevention through ICT (eg. use of social networks, applications, use of smart devices). The effectiveness of the developed tools approaches would be tested on the target population (eg. adolescents, senior citizens, working population).
