JPI HDHL will be one of the speakers at a High-Level event in Brussels on World Food Day, the 16th of October 2019, with the theme ‘FOOD 2030: Nourishing people and nurturing the planet through sustainable and healthy diets for all’. Participants are invited to discuss the cross-sectoral role of nutrition, with a focus on obesity. The organization of the event is a collaborative effort by the FAO, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Committee of the Regions, and the European Commission/FIT4FOOD2030.
The agenda and registration link will be published in early September. The event will also be live-streamed online.
The Joint Programming Initiative a Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life was established almost 10 years ago. This means it is time to evaluate the impact the JPI HDHL has had so far; have the objectives of the different Implementation Plans of JPI HDHL been fulfilled? Which effects has the JPI HDHL had on the scientific community, research programming, and research policy? To carry out this task, we are looking for an external evaluator.
The website of the JPI HDHL project: Policy Eveluation Network (PEN) has been launched.
The Policy Evaluation Network, funded by the JPI HDHL, started in the beginning of 2019 and will run for 3 years. 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 inequalities.
