Advancing Effective Obesity Prevention Initiatives Across Europe
Over 30% of EU citizens at vulnerable stages and situations in life are at increased risk to transgress from healthy weight to overweight and further to obesity. Although many interventions have been proposed to tackle obesity, they have rarely been effective due to their failure to adapt to personal contexts, overlook emotional factors, and engage users. The goal of HealthyW8 is to improve the efficacy of obesity prevention initiatives across Europe by developing a digital-based healthy lifestyle recommender system that tailors interventions to individual needs and preferences.
The project brings together a consortium of 24 public and private partners among the most prestigious institutions in Europe and will draw on transdisciplinary research to increase the impact of current and future obesity prevention interventions and policies in the EU.
