CAPHRI webinar 'The use and development of apps in health research'

webinar apps

So, you want to use an app in your research? Well, just look in the app store and download! Alas, the reality is not that simple and there are things to keep in mind both from the participant view as from the researchers view.

In this webinar, we will go from research question towards the research tool: and yes, this might actually be an app. Using examples of apps developed at Maastricht University, the following concepts will be discussed: Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs), user scenarios and wireframes, feature creep, data and data protection, legal - regulations (including medical devices). At the end of this webinar, you should have a better understanding what to take into account when deciding to use an app in you research as well as which experts can assist you in this process.

Guest speaker is:
Dr. An Stevens, Department of Research Engineering, Maastricht University
