Future Actions

Since obesity is a major public health issue facing the European Union, the EU has provided €59 million in funding to nine obesity-related research projects since 1998. Europe’s scientific community has been working hard to find answers. This effort is set to continue under the forthcoming Seventh Framework Programme (2007–2013) which will provide further scientific data to advance our understanding of the interaction between food, nutrition and health. New knowledge of this kind is a vital ingredient in our efforts to make our diets healthier and combat obesity.
