EU Projects

Dissemination of European Obesity Research

EASO acts as a dissemination partner in a number of important EU funded research projects (both PF7 and Horizon 2020), often as WP Leader. EASO develops and implements dissemination work package plans, with tasks including (but not limited to) project identity, branding and website development; communications and media; social media; scientific exchange; webcasts and educational workshops; and scientific guideline development. We would be happy to discuss dissemination opportunities with project coordinators, groups and individuals currently carrying out European obesity research. Please contact the EASO Secretariat to discuss your dissemination requirements and the nature and scope of your research project(s).


The best way to help people lose weight and keep it off is to develop programmes based on solid evidence of what works and what doesn’t work. At the moment, we don’t know enough about how to do this. NoHoW will tackle this problem.
