DynaHEALTH consortium members met in York for the project’s annual General Assembly meeting. The first day involved a number of presentations focused on the on-going research work on healthy ageing and highlighted some very interesting results. It is becoming clearer that the status of a child’s health has a profound influence on the risks of developing non-communicable diseases such as type 2 diabetes in later life. The second day focused on strategic planning for the final year of this four year EU funded project, including how best to disseminate the research results and exploit any emerging commercial opportunities.
The meeting was hosted and chaired by DynaHEALTH Project Coordination Team from the University of Oulu in Finland, Professor Marjo-Riitta Järvelin and Dr Sylvain Sebert.
Beta Technology is the partner responsible for the work package relating to dissemination and exploitation. During the two-day assembly, the Beta team used the opportunity to film Professor Järvelin and other researchers talking about the project and the results emerging from it. The video clips will be used on the DynaHEALTH website to convey key messages to policy makers and other stakeholders.
