New technologies to measure non-health topics in longitudinal studies

4 May 2017

Drawing on evidence from across the longitudinal studies in CLOSER, and beyond, this workshop discussed the evidence gathered to date on the use of new technologies to measure non-health topics. This workshop was hosted by CLOSER.


About the workshop

Examples of new technologies being implemented in data collections include using smartphone features (apps, GPS etc.), wearable devices and other types of monitors. Presentations explored many different methods that can be used to measure key variables more accurately, or perhaps in a less burdensome way, or to respond to new and emerging research needs in non-health areas.

Building on presentations and discussions, the workshop aimed to identify innovative new technologies that can be used to generate new science. Delegates also discussed the implications for data quality and key methodological research needs.
