The NWO Domain Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) has three different funding programmes in the Open Competition. The SSH-XS grants are available for projects with a maximum budget of 50,000 euro to enable proposals for curiosity-driven, fundamental research in the research fields covered by the NWO SSH. This Call for proposals has four rounds.
In February 2023, our researcher Asst. Prof. Dr. Armağan Karahanoğlu received 50.000€ in the second round of the call, for carrying out her research entitled “My Life, My Decision”: Trust issues in Human-Technology Shared Health Decision-Making (MINDED). This project examines what can go wrong when people are given more opportunities to make technology-shared decisions to self-manage their health. Knowledge gained from this project will aid the development of personal health technologies for areas such as chronic disease management and injury prevention. This project is starting in July 2023, and will host a junior researcher in our group for one year.
