A proper recognition of the vulnerability of children and families in relation to properly coordinated care or support requires a complete picture and optimal information (data).
The increasing availability of large and complex datasets and other datasources provide new possibilities to investigate these relationships. It also makes it possible to determine which role big data analyses could play in providing a promising start for children.
The research intends to contribute to the early identification of (risk) characteristics that determine whether children and (future) families are or will be vulnerable. Identifying such risks will facilitate the provision of timely and appropriate help and support for a promising start.
In phase I a daily allowance will be made available for participation in the workshop over several days. During these days, the participants will explore what a promising start for a child should ideally look like in the future. Participants will identify the relevant sources of data and explore the potential of innovative technologies and theories from big data research. In phase II, two or three research projects will be realised on the themes, identified in phase I, with a total budget of M€2.64 million.
This call will start with a preliminary research in which scenario’s are identified. Based on this preliminary research themes are identified for research in phase II.
Professionals in perinatal care and youth health care (JGZ), knowledge institutions, researchers with scientific expertise in the area of the social sciences and humanities, physical and natural sciences of social medicine or health sciences, and other interested parties kunnen middels een motivatiebrief hun interesse kenbaar maken voor deelname aan scenario-onderzoek (fase I).
The selection committee will assess the letters of motivation. Selected applicants will participate in a a multidisciplinary team for scenario research (phase I). This scenario research in phase I provis input for further research (phase II). Consortia, primarily based on participant in phase I, possibly with extra expertise if needed, can submit a full research proposal for phase II.
This call for proposals is for participation in phase I, for which a daily allowance (based on meeting preparation and attendance allowance) is availabe. For research projects in phase II, a total budget of M€ 2.64 is available.
A format for the letters of motivations should be en format voor uw motivatiebrief op via email@example.com. The letter of motivation should be submitted prior to October 24, 2019 14:00 CE(ST) via ProjectNet.
