Profile

Developments in communication technology open up unprecedented opportunities for healthy and sustainable ways of changing behaviour. Moniek Buijzen studies how the benefits of digital technology can be optimally used for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, while keeping potential risks at a minimum.

In 2019, she was awarded a prestigious Vici grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for her project ‘SocialMovez: Effective and Responsible Health Campaigns for Adolescents Using Online Social Networks’.

Developments in communication technology open up unprecedented opportunities for healthy and sustainable ways of changing behaviour. Moniek Buijzen studies how the benefits of digital technology can be optimally used for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, while keeping potential risks at a minimum.

In 2019, she was awarded a prestigious Vici grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for her project ‘SocialMovez: Effective and Responsible Health Campaigns for Adolescents Using Online Social Networks’. In this 5-year project, Buijzen and her team investigate how health campaigns for youth can be disseminated more effectively, via peer influencers in the online social network. Using innovative data-analytic technologies, the SocialMovez team will reveal how online social network campaigns can be optimized, while safeguarding youth’s privacy and autonomy.

Building bridges with a team science approach
In her work, Buijzen aims for a continuous interaction between the development of theory, methodological advances, and innovative technological applications. Her team science approach is interdisciplinary, uniting elements from the fields of social sciences, health sciences, computer sciences, and law.

Buijzen is also actively involved in forging links between science and practice. Together with her colleague Esther Rozendaal she established the accessible and appealing online knowledge portal Bitescience.com.

Bio
Buijzen received her doctorate at the University of Amsterdam in 2003, where she subsequently worked as an assistant and associate professor. From 2012 to 2019, she was professor and chair of the Communication Science department of Radboud University’s Behavioural Science Institute. She received a NWO Vici grant in 2019 for a 5-year research project studying the implementation of health campaigns through online social networks. Buijzen had previously received an NWO Veni grant (2003) and a Vidi grant (2008), and a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). Her work has been recognised with awards from the International Communication Association, the International Conference on Research in Advertising, and the Child and Teen Consumption Conference
