Centre for Motivation and Health Behaviour Change

We focus on the study and application of motivation. We aim to understand the determinants of wellness and health, and guide behaviour-change interventions.

About us

We are a problem-focused interdepartmental Research Centre. We focus on:

  • better understanding of the determinants of health and wellbeing in the context of key public health issues
  • guiding the development, refinement, and testing of novel and innovative interdisciplinary health behaviour-change interventions

Our research has drawn over £7 million from external funders (MRC, ESRC, EPSRC, NIHR), and generated over 350 research papers.

Our team undertake roles on national and international boards, panels, and advisory groups to help us achieve wide reaching and notable impact.
