In the initial stages of the project our strategy is to meet and build relationships with a number of key policy stakeholders in the EU Commission and other relevant agencies. We will encourage project partners to undertake dissemination activities in their own regions, but we acknowledge that our biggest impact is likely to be at the EU-wide level, and so this is where we will concentrate our efforts.
We have attended key conferences to enable us to meet stakeholders, and we are using our web site and newsletters as engagement tools to keep stakeholders informed of our progress.
Engagement with the High Level Group on Nutrition and Physical Activity (European Government Representatives) and EU Platform for Action on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (European-level organisations, ranging from the food industry to consumer protection NGOs) have brought the project to the attention of a broad audience.
