This new UBEL pathway has interdisciplinary expertise on behaviour change which spans the spectrums of health and wellbeing promotion, prevention and intervention optimisation.

There are strong synergies with work undertaken in other UBEL pathways (e.g. international development; population and health) and groups (e.g., Digital footprints, environments and global development). The pathway also works alongside health professionals, commissioners and policy makers for workforce transformation and whole-systems management. Sustainable futures are another key area of research.

The research also centres on methodological advancement with experience in the breadth of research methods, with particular expertise on qualitative research methods, evidence synthesis (e.g., systematic reviews) and intervention design, delivery and evaluation. Research maps directly onto ESRC priorities on Health and Social Care and Understanding Behaviour. The Centre for Behaviour Change partners with institutions from across the UK and internationally and has strategic partnerships with organisations such as the Department of Health and Social Care through being a Policy Research Unit in Behavioural Science.
