About the course

The course takes a holistic approach to implementation science with a particular focus on global health challenges in low- and middle-income countries. You will become familiar with concepts and methods within the area of implementation science and develop skills in applying theories, models and frameworks in order to individually develop and defend an implementation science project focusing on challenges of Sustainable Development and Global Health. You will supervise peers in reaching the same objective. Examples will be drawn from ongoing research at the department and from the up-to-date scientific literature.
