The performance of Stress in Action will be divided across three Research Themes. Despite their different goals, the three RTs are strongly interlinked. The RTs address their main research questions using similar existing datasets, tools and intervention techniques, and a shared enriched data infrastructure. The themes elaborate on each other’s results, and have overlap in contributing SiA consortium members.
The goal of RT2 is to develop increasingly sophisticated versions of a cutting-edge, low-burden, ecologically valid ambulatory assessment toolkit to quantify stress in daily life, and to design, test, and iteratively improve stress interventions using that toolkit.
The aim of RT3 is to determine the impact of daily life stress responses, in interaction with personal vulnerability and resilience characteristics, on the development and course of mental and cardiometabolic health, using enriched longitudinal cohort data as well as clinical intervention approaches.
