Workshop on Social Sciences and Humanities’ contribution to tackle the Obesity Epidemic

In January 2013, more than 50 researchers and stakeholders from around Europe gathered in Brussels for the workshop Social Sciences and Humanities contribution to tackle the Obesity Epidemic: Challenges & Potentials in Obesity Research towards Horizon 2020.

The objective of the workshop was to create a cross-European forum for identifying, describing and discussing future potentials in obesity research, to establish new and nurture existing networks and collaborations of researchers across social sciences and humanities and the natural sciences with an interest in obesity research, and hereby to mobilize the significant European research capacities and potentials in preparing for Horizon 2020.
