Support Cores

The Support Cores provide analytical innovation, infrastructure, and career development support to allow all researchers to be fully capable to conduct their tasks.

Data Analysis Support Core2024-04-05T09:46:34+00:00

The Data Analysis Support Core (DASC) aims to help SiA researchers make use of optimal analytic strategies in their research. This requires an alignment between one’s research question, data, and analytical technique. Hence, the DASC is concerned with:

  1. Raising awareness about how to best align these components of empirical research and how to make methodological decisions.
  2. Identifying data analytical challenges and developing new techniques to tackle these, by innovating the individual techniques and by combining dynamic modelling and machine
    learning techniques.
Data Infrastructure Support Core2024-04-05T09:51:41+00:00

The overall goal of the Data Infrastructure Support Core (DISC) is to provide a central coordinating hub for data collection, data management, and data delivery processes within Stress in Action. DISC provides central ICT support, conducts all procurement and maintenance of apps and wearables, and trains SiA members in standardized data collection and management processes.

In phase I, the DISC catalogues the existing ambulatory datasets and provides meta-data annotation. They create a Data Management Plan, a data codebook for the new cohort enrichment data, and procedures for collection, cleaning and (long-term) data storage.

In phase II, they will create the Data Governance Framework and the Standard Operational Procedures for the new data collection.

Career Support Core2024-04-05T09:53:04+00:00

The Career Support Core (CASC) will provide a launching platform for future research leaders that grows and nurtures research lines around the broad theme of daily-life stress and build on the game changers of Stress in Action. The CASC will (1) attract and recruit top-talented researchers, (2) optimise their talent and career development through tailored mentoring, provision of leadership roles within the SiA programme, and an (international) exchange programme, and (3) provide education in e.g. theory, assessment and analytical methods relevant for the SiA programme, thereby boosting the international position of daily-life stress researchers.
