Location: Medawar Building G01 Lankester LT, Gower Street WC1E 6BT

Speaker: Dr Andres Fonseca, UCL Division of Psychiatry



 Abstract: In this talk Andres explores his decision to create a company to develop and commercialise digital interventions for mental health. He discusses the challenges of translating research into real world applications and his own approach to doing research into his own projects. He will touch on a broader discussion of how standard research methodology into interventions is not always suitable in digital interventions and what the alternatives are. Finally he will discuss the business side of digital interventions and his approach to designing business models to make interventions sustainable.
