The work is developed in partnership with the other labs that integrate ITR as well as national and international external partnerships.
The goals of this lab are as follows:
The information produced through our research is useful to define policies according to the best evidence available.
The knowledge obtained, namely on the role of health-related behaviours, such as food intake and physical activity, will be used for the design, implementation and evaluation of community-based lifestyle interventions, as strategies for health promotion. This is done in close partnership with community stakeholders, namely with local governments, using a community-based participatory research.
