P4PLAY: Research Programme
P4PLAY: European Joint Doctorate
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). The outcome of P4PLAY will be a new generation of early stage researchers who can translate and implement innovative and entrepreneurial play solutions to benefit the health and wellbeing of diverse children, families, and communities.
8 fully-funded PhD positions will be recruited to commence this new programme in late January 2021.
