Who decides the relevance and validity of knowledge?
The use of research in policies that strive toward healthy populations
Nordic Workshop, Stockholm, 14–15 May 2019
What is the definition of useful, meaningful, and valuable knowledge? Who decides and influences this definition and what are the institutionalised processes by which policy relevance is maintained?
Objective: This small-scale 2-day workshop targets researchers interested in unfolding the relationship between science and policy-making in questions of public health and lifestyle regulation (concerning for example alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use; gambling; nutrition)
Deadline for registration: 29 March, 2019.
The target group of the workshop are scholars with an interest in the relationship between knowledge production and policies in the fields of lifestyles and public health.
Idea paper submission: Participants are encouraged to submit idea papers of 1–3 pages. These are to introduce readers to a research topic and an approach that the participant wants to present at the workshop. Please submit your idea papers at registration by 29 March.
Event format: The workshop builds on idea paper presentations and discussions. The workshop aims at a future publication, most likely in the NAD journal, but other publication options are up for discussion.
Place: Nordic Welfare Centre, Drottninggatan 30, Stockholm
