Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Facilitated workshops, in which a group of key stakeholders are helped to structure, build and use a multicriteria model, are a common and effective approach to MCDA. However, often it is not possible to bring together all those with relevant expertise and ownership. This talk will describe and reflect on the lessons learned from two case studies which have used different ways of sourcing expert input to inform the building of multicriteria models to be used by others, one associated with the UNEP MCA4Climate Project and the other the EPSRC Highly Distributed Energy Futures Project.
