PRESENT - Primary prevention and health promotion reseach networks coodination


The objectives of the project are the joint coordination and publicity of the five BMBF-funded research networks on primary prevention and health promotion (HLCA, CAPITAL4HEALTH, PartKommPlus, SMARTACT and AEQUIPA, funding period 2018-2021). Through the joint coordination and the development of joint-comprehensive publications, research results should be strengthened and the public health impact should be increased. In addition, the scientific exchange should be intensified and further goal-oriented research projects should be initiated. Due to the thematically similar orientation of the research networks junior research programs will be pooled to improve the promotion of young researchers.
Joint workshops, conferences and public events will be held to achieve these goals. The research networks will be presented in a collective internet presentation to strengthen public awareness.
Comprehensive scientific and public publications will be coordinated in print and social media as well as in websites. A network analysis of the five individual research networks and their joint activities will be conducted to point out structural developments and opportunities for long-term cooperation’s. Furthermore, we aimed to network with international research groups.
