P4Play: Research Programme
P4Play: European Joint Doctorate
P4PLAY is a joint doctoral programme that is a collaboration between four academic and fifteen partner organisations. Partners in our consortium come from government play policy advisors, and NGO advocacy groups in addition to designers of play materials with a fundamental commitment to child participation, as part of the societal challenge of ensuring health, well-being and equality for children (UN Sustainable Goals 3 & 10). Our goal is to progress a rights-based agenda for all children at risk of play deprivation through the development of a child-centred play research programme in relation to four fundamental areas: People, Place, Policy and Practice (P4Play).
8 Fully-funded PhD positions will be recruited to commence this new programme in September 2020.
