Education and training

Based on its clear mission to tackle current and future societal challenges, the University of Deusto has organised its research and training activities around four main research foci, one of which is Health and Wellbeing.

The Health and Wellbeing focus is aligned with the Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing societal challenge of Horizon 2020. It aims to assess and identify the risk factors for many health problems, both physical and mental, and to develop prevention and intervention programmes improving citizens’ health and wellbeing from an integrative perspective.

Deusto International Research School (DIRS) will promote interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility of international qualified researchers in areas such as health, ageing, healthy and active life, integrated care, social values, age-friendly environments, ICT, Big Data, health management, health transformation, rehabilitation programs, silver economy and education. Their research will serve excellence and innovation, with new innovative solutions responding to the challenges faced by society and promoting inclusive and positive models of sustainable development. PhD researchers will participate in the activities of the Interdisciplinary Research Platform Ageing and Wellbeing and contribute the promotion of active, healthy and meaningful ageing and innovative solutions and alternatives to the problems and opportunities raised by demographic change.
