Healthy ageing, health and well-being are focal areas of research at the University of Groningen. At the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences there is considerable expertise on these topics and a lot of potential for fruitful collaborations between researchers and students. The aim of this annual symposium is to bring together researchers, PhD and (research) master students who share an interest in healthy ageing, health and well-being from the perspective of the behavioural and social sciences. The symposium serves to inform each other about ongoing work at the faculty, explore opportunities for future collaborations and joint funding proposals, and contribute to the creation of an active Health and Well-being research community within the Faculty and beyond.

The symposium starts with a walk-in lunch from 12:00-12:30 hrs, followed by a keynote by Floor Middel, Assistant professor at the pedagogical and educational sciences deparment of our faculty. Floor will talk about:

Disparities in decision-making: The case of child protection

After the keynote researchers from different research groups within the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences will present their ongoing research projects on one of three research themes:

1. Healthy Ageing
2. Health in social context
3. Health interventions and policy development

Presentations will be short (approximately 10-20 min) to allow for a substantial amount of time for discussions.
