New project for the Federal Office for Radiation ProtectionConPolicy starts study on the possibilities of nudging in the field of UV protection

On behalf of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS), ConPolicy and the innovation agency INNOKI are conducting a study on possible applications of nudging in the field of UV protection until December 2019. The aim of this study is to show how measures can be designed such that citizens protect themselves adequately against UV radiation.

The study will examine to what extent recommended protective measures and target group are already considered in the literature and which gaps still exist. Furthermore, nudging measures with particular regard to their relevance for UV protection are analysed and their applicability is assessed. Methodologically the study is based on a systematic literature review and a workshop for the creative development of nudge prototypes.
