Our primary focus is to tackle the growing epidemic of childhood and adolescent obesity within the European Union.
Dissemination of European Obesity Research Projects
EASO acts as a dissemination partner in a number of important EU funded research projects (both FP7 and Horizon 2020), often as WP Leader.
EASO develops and implements dissemination work package plans, with tasks including project identity, branding and website development; communications and media; social media; educational workshops; scientific exchange and guideline development.
We would be happy to discuss opportunities with those currently carrying out European obesity research. Please contact the EASO Secretariat to discuss your requirements and scope of your research project.
