Official launch of the European Forum for Health Promotion Research (HP Forum) ! 


During the reception of the first day of the 10th IUHPE European Conference and International Forum for Health Promotion Research, you will be able to learn more about this network. The HP Forum brings together researchers across Europe to further develop and strengthen health promotion research. It also aims to inform politicians and policy makers in the European Region of advancements in health promotion practices, programs and research.


The HP Forum is initiated by IUHPE, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC). It is supported by the European Public Health Association (EUPHA), EuroHealthNet, WHO/Europe and the UNESCO Chair for Global Health and Education, which will also be presented at tonight's event.
