Aim of the joint call The aim of this call is to support research projects that focus on the development, implementation and evaluation of innovative strategies designed to prevent or reduce overweight and obesity, in defined target populations based on certain life stages. The research to be funded within this call should have a holistic, multi-disciplinary and solution orientated approach and focus on one or more crucial phase(s) throughout the lifespan such as transition periods or critical life events. To increase the impact of the research and facilitate its later use in future policies on lifestyle interventions and public health, this call strongly encourages the active integration of stakeholders or citizen science approaches. These partners should be engaged in the research process from conception of the study to dissemination and implementation.
