Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
Funding for transnational projects on determinants and mechanisms of diet-related behaviour and physical activity as well as sedentary behaviour.
Característiques principals
The aim of this call is to develop novel strategies and targeted approaches to identify, understand, and modify determinants and mechanisms of diet-related behaviour and physical activity as well as sedentary behaviour, which have the potential to break through the cycles maintaining unhealthy behaviours and lifestyles and to reduce health inequalities.
Research should be targeted at socio-economically disadvantaged groups and their setting, including the family, social, cultural, and local background, as well as digital influences.

Proposals should comprise holistic and multi-disciplinary research, that must include several approaches tackling different aspects, such as:
  • Mapping the current situation of the vulnerable groups with respect to food and built environment for physical activity;
  • Developing and testing innovative interventions/ targeted strategies
  • Evaluating existing interventions, e.g. to identify barriers in the implementation;
  • Assessing the efficiency of policies and fiscal approaches (e.g. taxes and subsidies) that were implemented to enhance healthy diets and physical activity;
  • Expanding the theoretical basis on the systemic barriers to change, e.g. political, economic and/or cultural barriers to increase the effect of interventions.
    The research results should have a clear potential to be translated into policy recommendations or actions.
