In total, 54 eligible Expression of Interest letters (EoI) have been submitted to the Joint Funding Action “Effectiveness of existing policies for lifestyle interventions – Policy Evaluation Network (PEN)”. After the evaluation by the Scientific Evaluation Committee (SEC), 28 research groups were selected to elaborate a joint network proposal.
To facilitate the working process, all selected research groups were invited to a network meeting in Bonn on Jun-13th to get in touch with each other, elect the network coordinator and start the discussion on the potential structure of the network and the joint proposal. The final funding decision is expected by the end of 2017.
