It is well recognised that the overconsumption of energy-dense food combined with an inactive lifestyle are important causes for overweight, obesity and other metabolic alterations increasing the risk for several chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, the exact mechanisms are still not well understood and also vary on an individual level.
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.
The expected long-term impact of this call is to prevent or delay the onset of metabolic diseases by gaining a better understanding on the relation between food, diet and metabolic diseases. Identification of the food factors that influence health and characterization of the underlying mechanisms will contribute to reach this aim. In addition, the identification of food processing conditions with beneficial effects will enable the industry to produce healthier high-quality foods that will slow down the prevalence of metabolic diseases.
For more detailed information about above-mentioned criteria, see the call text.
