A consortium with the Center won a bid for a large Health project in Horizon 2020

The project Inter-sectoral Health and Environment Research for Innovation (INHERIT) “Achieving Healthy and Environmentally Sustainable Lives for all” is research on inter-sectoral policies and interventions that promotes health and well-being across the social gradient by tackling key environmental stressors and related inequalities in the areas of living, consuming and moving. INHERIT will bring together relevant stakeholders from different sectors, including the private sector. It will support intersectoral cooperation within the areas of environment, climate and health. 

Geir Arild Espnes, Monica Lillefjell and Bård Li have been involved from the Center for Health Promotion and Research. The center leads a large work package in the project and is, as such, part of the project’s leadership team. The application process has been coordinated by EuroHealthNet – where the Faculty of Social Sciences and Technology Management at NTNU is a member.
