MiLife: Mobile Assessment of Physical Activity

(funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG; part of the project RISKDYNAMICS)

A study using ambulatory assessment to assess physical activity in everyday life. For this study a smartphone app was developed, able to feedback the assessed physical activity to the study participants on a daily basis, and to assess several psychological variables. The study aims at a better understanding of the interplay between physical activity and psychological factors.

First pilot studies started in 2018 and data collection with an advanced study design is still ongoing

​​

CORIS: Cross-cultural Risk Perception: Comparing Israel and Germany.

Coris is an online survey comparing risk perceptions between Israel and Germany.  The study assesses risk perceptions in various domains, such as health or environmental risks. The study aims at a better understanding of differences in risk perceptions between countries and the interplay between personal experiences with risks and subsequent risk perceptions.

DIE KONSTANZER LIFE-STUDIE: A longitudinal study to assess how healthy the citizens of Konstanz are.
