CEN Workshop Agreement on 'Guidelines on Action Research for Large Scale Piloting'

The planned Workshop will define Action Research and its role in large scale pilots. It will identify the key stakeholders involved and outline the necessary steps to conduct Action Research including planning, pre-validation, deployment, data collection and analysis.

This workshop will provide guidance on ethical consideration as well as addressing challenges and solutions like managing data, communication and collaboration among stakeholders. It will specify ways to ensure the sustainability and scalability of the Action Research outcomes. Key competencies and skills researchers and other stakeholders need to conduct Action Research will be outlined.


The workshop will establish a framework for the identification of opportunities for future research and collaboration in this area.


This workshop is intended to mainly be used by researchers and pilot managers, but can also be useful to other involved stakeholders like health and care providers, ethics boards and technology providers.


The kick-off meeting will be held on Monday 17th July 2023, from 10:00 – 13:00 CEST as a web meeting.
