DEDIPAC: DEterminants of DIet and Physical ACtivity

 

DEDIPAC was a Joint Programme Initiative Knowledge Hub to integrate and develop infrastructure for research across Europe.  

HERU co-ordinated the University of Aberdeen contribution within the Pathways to a Healthy Life strategic research theme.  HERU staff were involved in the development of a concept toolbox for evaluating policies addressing diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviours, with particular emphasis on economic evaluation.

Outcome and Translation

The overall DEDIPAC programme was successful in developing infrastructure and capacity for future research.  

More information on the DEDIPAC project is available at the DEDIPAC website.
