The Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity (DEDIPAC) Knowledge Hub (KH) is the first action of the European Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) "A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life".
The objective of the DEDIPAC KH 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."
The DEDIPAC KH is a multidisciplinary consortium of scientists from 46 research centres supported by joint programming funds from 12 countries across Europe.
The work in DEDIPAC is divided into three Thematic Areas (TAs):
Carla Lopes, University of Porto, Portugal
Yannis Manios, Harokopio University, Athens, Greece
Lynn Frewer, Newcastle University, United Kingdom
Antonio Figueiredo, University of Coimbra, Portugal
Liselotte Schäfer Elinder, Karolinska Institute, Sweden
