DEDIPAC’s last publication: a summary of findings

IMAGE Monday, 13 November 2017
DEDIPAC, the Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity Knowledge Hub, was the first action taken by the JPI Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life, to better align research across Europe on healthy dietary and physical activity behavior. Over the past three years, around 300 researchers from 13 countries have provided better insight into the ‘causes of the causes’ of important, non-communicable diseases across Europe to translate this knowledge into more effective promotion of healthy diet and physical activity. DEDIPAC has generated 38 publications until now, the more recent one summarizes major DEDIPAC’s findings on the state of the art, what was achieved in terms of furthering measurement and monitoring, and building toolboxes for further research and practice. Additionally, DEDIPAC proposes some of the next steps that are now required to move forward in this field. Read More...
