The ERA-Net HDHL-INTIMIC partners are pleased to announce the launch of a 3rd additional non-cofunded joint funding activity “Prevention of unhealthy weight gain and obesity during crucial phases throughout the lifespan” (PREPHOBES).

This new joint transnational call intends to fund dedicated, top-class transnational research consortia to provide insights into innovative strategies to prevent or reduce overweight and obesity in defined target populations. This call gives a unique opportunity to connect researchers with expertise in obesity prevention and stakeholders that can facilitate policy-based solutions.

Eleven funding agencies from 10 different countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Spain, The Netherlands) have already committed a budget of more than 7M €.

The PREPHOBES call consists of a two-stage submission procedure. Interested researchers should submit their pre-proposals by April 3, 2020, using the Electronic submission system of the JPI HDHL.

After the scientific peer review of the pre-proposals, in case of selection consortia will be invited for the second step end of May 2020 and will have to submit their full proposals by Mid July 2020.
