DEDIPAC KH (2013)Deadline: o'clock
In 2012, the JPI HDHL launched its first Joint Action: Knowledge Hub on Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity Knowledge Hub (DEDIPAC KH). DEDIPAC started in 2014 and finished in 2016.
Who can apply
In the research area, “Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity” as outlined in the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA, 1st edition), was described that the JPI should contribute to the identification of the most cost‐effective and efficient ways to ensure healthy lifestyle choices for consumers for prevention and control of diet and sedentary life style‐related chronic diseases. The long‐term goal of the JPI in this area is to stimulate a comprehensive and integrated health action at public and private levels aiming to motivate, nudge and enable people to adopt and easily maintain diet and physical activity healthy choices.
AIM OF THE CALL
The establishment of this European trans‐disciplinary research network programme was expected to contribute to the understanding of how biological, ecological, psychological, sociological, economic and socio‐economic factors influence consumer decision‐making. Differences across European Member States and Associated Countries in economic, social and policy environments present the opportunity to improve our understanding of how these contextual factors influence diet and physical activity. Better knowledge and best practice implementation strategies including predictive models were required for long‐term lifestyle changes and for more effective policy interventions.
Increased complexity of populations on cultural, socio‐economic and environmental grounds, impacts of genetic and epigenetic differences across the European population were considered for effective disease prevention in target populations.
Funding organisations participating in the JPI HDHL DEDIPAC KH will fund new activities and/or redirect existing funding/capacities (i.e. an in‐kind contribution) towards the needs of the DEDIPAC KH. The nature of funding provided by each funding organisation and country is explained in detail in the National Requirements in ANNEX B. Each participating country will be responsible for deciding which of its national scientists are eligible to join the DEDIPAC KH and the type (new or in‐kind) and level of funding it makes available to its selected members. The aim for the selection process is to result in a well‐balanced network of members providing all the necessary expertise required by the DEDIPAC KH action plan.
