Evidence-based, innovative solutions that support people who want to adopt a healthy lifestyle. That is the goal of the Institute for Preventive Health’s (i4PH) multidisciplinary research.

We bring together professionals from various disciplines to conduct research at the cutting edge of lifestyle, environment and technology.

Four research themes

We promote research on four themes:

  • Healthy Start: Which lifestyle interventions work best for young people with a low socio-economic status and other disadvantages? This question is central to the Healthy Start theme
  • Preserving Health In the Health Preservation research line, we explore environmental changes and effective lifestyle interventions for adults to live longer in good health, with an emphasis on addressing challenges in vulnerable neighborhoods.
  • Living with Disease: How do you improve the quality of life of people with chronic diseases? That is what the Living with Disease theme investigates.
  • Health@Home: To what extent do food preparation apps and other technology tools help older people to live independently at home for longer?

Research Initiatives – How i4PH helps

Seed calls & Seed Funds. The alliance offers staff members the opportunity to explore new interdisciplinary connections between the partner institutions through seed funding.

Pressure cookers. Often conducted online, it serves as dynamic platforms for scientists to come together and explore new research possibilities through multidisciplinary or transdisciplinary collaboration.

Research support and help with Funding. The i4PH has an extensive datebase of available funding opportunities. We help to find the right funding, bring researchers together, and work together to submit applications.
