Cancelled - Opening of Social Sciences Centre for Health and Well-being

When:Th 26-03-2020 15:00 - 17:00
Where:Bovenkamer, Groningen


Do you have insight into all the health and well-being related research that is done within our faculty – and the colleagues doing this work? Are you interested in exchanging knowledge, discussing emerging topics and getting to know new colleagues in this domain? Then the new Social Sciences Center for Health and Well-being may be something for you!

On March 26th (15.00-17.00 + drinks), the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences will open its new center which will be the faculty’s branch of the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health and will represent all BSS researchers within Aletta. The opening will take place at the Bovenkamer in Groningen.

In only 5 min each, 6 BSS colleagues will present their health research in flash talks to jump start our conversation!

The aim of the center is to bring together researchers within our faculty working on health and well-being related topics. The center will be built around 3 different themes:  Health in social context, Healthy Ageing and Health Interventions. The center will organize lunch meetings (approximately 4 times a year) in which we touch on discussions (theoretical, methodological, applied) that  are central in the Social Sciences. The center will also continue and broaden the work of the BSS Healthy Ageing initiative by organizing a yearly symposium (formerly Symposium on Healthy Ageing: Perspectives from the Behavioural and Social Sciences) and Healthy Ageing colloquia (2-3 times a year). An additional goal is to showcase to the outside world our faculty's contribution to research in the area of Health and Well-being.

Come join us for the opening and give input into the setup of the Center! The dean will officially open the center and there will be 6 short talks by staff members representing the three different themes: Health in social context, Healthy ageing, and Health Interventions.

We look forward to seeing you on the 26th!

Sincerely, also on behalf of the board members:
