Objectiu de la convocatòria
The Joint Programming Initiative "A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life" (JPI HDHL) has been established to coordinate research in the areas of food, diet, physical activity and health in order to achieve tangible societal and health impact and to strengthen European leadership and competitiveness in this field.

The aim of this call is to support transnational, collaborative research projects that address important research questions regarding the effects of food (components) or diets and/or food processing on overweight and related metabolic diseases. An additional objective is to support Early Career Scientists in the area of food, nutrition and health.

Proposals should focus on one or both of the following topics:
  • Identification of food (components) or diets that affect appetite and/or satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases as well as the underlying mechanisms. This includes the understanding of individual responses to food components or diet.
  • The effect of food processing and/or storage conditions on food components, and the mechanisms by which this will influence appetite and/or satiety, body weight regulation and/or risk factors for the development of overweight related metabolic diseases. This can include studying how to modify the amount of these food components during food processing without affecting consumer acceptance.

    To support Early Career Scientists (ECSs) the following conditions apply:
  • Proposals must include training of Early Career Scientists (ECSs i.e. PhD students or/and post-docs – please refer to National Annexes). Examples of training activities are mobility and lab visits of ECSs between partners of the consortium or implementation of summer school(s).
  • To support career development the JPI HDHL will organize a training activity for ECSs to assist with their career development after the projects have started. Travel costs for at least one ECS per consortium partner must be included in the budget plan of the proposal.
