Behavioral responses to health innovations and the consequences for socioeconomic outcomes

CEBI researchers, with Mette Gørtz as principal investigator, are now starting up the new research project studying the formation of health inequality: Behavioral responses to health innovations and the consequences for socioeconomic outcomes.

New health technologies spread at different pace across different groups in society, seeming to benefit better-educated groups more and thus allowing them to be more productive, work for longer periods, and invest more to finance an extended period of healthy retirement. This continuously growing gap in health is a challenge for society. The aim of the project is to shed light on the underlying mechanisms behind this development.
