Collaborative Research And Training in the European Health Psychology Society – The Early Career Researcher Network of the EHPS


CREATE organises interactive workshops each year. Prominent experts within the field of health psychology are invited to lead these workshops. The overall aim of these workshops is to enhance knowledge and skills of participants. Workshop themes are current topics in health psychology theory and research, but also involve methodology and more practical issues like the process of developing papers for peer-review.

Please note, that if the number of applicants exceeds the number of places, CREATE reserves the rights to select participants based on diversity.

Workshop Description:

Looking for ways to communicate your research to others outside of the research world but not knowing where to start? In this two-day interactive workshop facilitated by Dr. Laura König (University of Bayreuth, Germany) and Dr. Heide Busse (BIPS Bremen, Germany), you will have a chance to delve into the topic of science communication. Together, we will discuss why engaging in science communication is rewarding for health psychology researchers at all career stages, explore how to develop and plan a science communication activity, discover different avenues for the implementation of such activities, and look at examples for do’s and don’ts in science communication. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to plan and implement a science communication strategy for your own research or practice. In addition, you will meet and exchange ideas with other international early career researchers and ample opportunity for exchange and networking will be provided.
