Centre for Behaviour Change


CBC Online Conference 2020

Behaviour Change for Health: new and emerging science and technologies #cbcconf2020

CBC Online Conference








#cbconf2020 provided a unique opportunity to reimagine our in-person conference to create an online and engaging event. The conference inspired delegates to explore opportunities for interaction across academic disciplines and sectors on the topics of digital health and behaviour change. Through the delivery of advanced event materials and live sessions, #cbcconf2020 saw the exchange of expertise and information between those producing knowledge and those applying that knowledge to solve real-world problems.
