Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity

Lead Research Organisation: Quadram Institute Bioscience
Department Name: Contracts


The Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity (DEDIPAC) Knowledge Hub (KH) is the first pilot to contribute to the DEDIPAC pillar of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) 2012-2020 and beyond of the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) 'A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life' (HD4HL). The objective as formulated in this SRA is "to understand the determinants, at both the individual and group levels, regarding dietary, physical activity and sedentary behaviours using a broad multidisciplinary approach, including biological, ecological, psychological, sociological, economic and other socio-economic perspectives, and their interrelationships and to translate this knowledge into a more effective promotion of a healthy diet and physical activity." This first pilot of JPI HD4HL is obviously to contribute to that overall SRA objective, and aims to do so by preparing, developing and realizing a knowledge hub - i.e.a network and infrastructure - for future monitoring, research and translation of research to policy and practice regarding determinants of dietary, physical activity and sedentary behaviours.
