Abstract

Well-being economies develop policies at the intersection of health and socio-economic inequalities. These policies are often informed by data-driven approaches, such as quality-of-life indicators. However, despite great efforts in measurement, it is known that the perspectives of underserved and unhealthy populations are not always fully captured. This raises the question to what extent well-being economy policies, informed by data alone, can adequately improve well-being for all. In this paper we investigate the potential of academia practice partnerships (AcPrac) in facilitating transfer and production of knowledge and skills between researchers and practitioners (including decision makers, governments, and communities) to create well-being policies informed by both data and people. We use bibliometric analysis to visualise the current state of knowledge on AcPrac. We find that 1) the health field has made the largest scientific contribution in this area, 2) cross-fertilization, which is at the heart of the well-being economy approach, is starting to take place between health and social sciences, and 3) concerns for equity are a shared value underlying transdisciplinary partnerships for well-being. Our findings contribute to understanding the role of AcPrac in advancing well-being economies and informing policy, but further research is needed to draw conclusions about its effectiveness.
