1. Overall project description


1.1 Summary

As part of the Joint Programming Initiative on a Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life (JPI HDHL), 28 research institutes from seven European countries and New Zealand combined their expertise to form the Policy Evaluation Network (PEN). PEN’s vision is to provide Europe with tools to identify, evaluate and benchmark policies designed to directly or indirectly address physical inactivity, unhealthy diets and sedentary behaviour while accounting for existing health inequities.  PEN has now concluded its second year and although the last year has been challenging due to COVID-19 restrictions, the consortium has continued to work to deliver on the project objectives. 


Despite the impediments caused by the pandemic, and building upon country-specific Food-EPI reports, PEN researched, consulted, and delivered on the first EU Food-EPI Policy evidence document.  Using innovative online solutions PEN coordinated an EU-wide high-level expert review and a prioritisation exercise.  This has resulted in a comprehensive picture of public sector food policy status across the EU, and a roadmap for its improvement for health promotion and prevention of non-communicable diseases, including obesity.  The full PEN EU Food-EPI will be published in 2021.  Parallel to this, a four-country comparison of physical activity policy was published, demonstrating the similarities and differences within policy governance and investment for enhancing population levels of physical activity.  To provide scientists and policy makers with an overview of how existing monitoring and surveillance datasets could be used, PEN synthesized information into a searchable online catalogue, available on the project website (www.jpi-pen.de).  In addition, a list of short instruments for consideration for inclusion has been developed.  Over 2020, several systematic literature reviews were published, are currently in review or are underway with significant work completed.  As limited knowledge existed in the policy arena prior to PEN, these essential reviews now offer considerable contribution to enriching knowledge and understanding for scientist and policy makers in policy evaluation, implementation and benchmarking applied to food, physical activity, and sedentary behaviour. PEN has further developed collaborations with other projects, namely the H2020 projects CO-CREATE and STOP and recently the EU Joint Action Best-ReMaP.  As each project is examining different aspects of policy, our aim is to maximise the impact of each individual project through collaboration.  In addition, a shared terminology for the policy evaluation network and a PEN glossary was developed, tested and consensus determined to ensure consistency.  Finally, in 2020 PEN established an Early Career Network (PEN-ECN) with the aim of facilitating connections and sharing of knowledge between PEN-ECN members to address their specific needs. PEN-ECN has 40 members and has hosted a range of webinars and exchange activities.


1.2 Highlights

WP1


- Two National Food Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI) reports were published in Ireland and Norway in 2020.


- A Food-EPI evidence document was developed and published in 2020.


- Two virtual EU Food-EPI Expert Panel workshops were convened to identify policy gaps and required actions at the EU level.  These were followed by an Expert Panel online rating survey to prioritise the identified actions.


- An audit comparing physical activity policy across four PEN countries was published in Health Res Policy Sys.


- A protocol for a systematic literature review examining the evidence for policy on physical activity across multiple settings was published in HRB Open Res


WP2


- A searchable ‘catalogue’ providing an overview of monitoring and surveillance datasets for key policy indicators in European countries is available on the project website.


- A set of short instruments (‘screeners’) allowing for the measurement of variables that describe relevant key policy indicators for dietary behaviour, physical activity, sedentary behaviour and equity was developed.


WP3


- A scoping review on the application of the GRADE system in policy evaluation was published in Implementation Sci.


- A unique Nielsen data set reporting individual purchases and sugar contents of soft-drink by > 9,000 Italian households during 2019-2020 was purchased and will be used for analysis and simulations.


WP4


- A meta-review on context-related determinants of implementation, informed by the Context and Implementation of Complex Interventions framework indicated strong support for economic resources, knowledge/beliefs/abilities of target groups, and political context determinants.


- A meta-review indicated that 7 out of 26 Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research based implementation determinants were supported by 66.7-76.2% of included reviews/stakeholder documents.


WP5


- Consortium-wide discussion on the development of a conceptual framework for evaluating how or why European policies aimed at changing diet, physical activity and/or sedentary behaviours may produce an equity impact.


WP6


- Michelle Eykelenboom, PhD-student shared some of the results of her study on the acceptability of a SSB tax in the Netherlands (where currently an SSB tax has not been implemented yet): https://www.facebook.com/VUScience/posts/diabetes-fonds-trapt-vandaag-de-nationale-suiker-challenge-af-met-een-gezond-onl/3096911127068243/


WP7


- The PEN Early Careers Network was created, its governance established and activities started.


- 2 Joint virtual symposia with the projects STOP and CO-CREATE took place: “Joint STOP/ CO-CREATE/ PEN symposium” on 30 Jun. 2020; “Disrupting childhood obesity trends across Europe” at the ECO/ICO virtual conference on 2 Sep. 2020.


- The consortium undertook a process to agree on a PEN glossary for use within the overall PEN project, and potentially beyond. This glossary is being prepared for public dissemination at the project website.
