Pilot projects on nutrition and physical activity

A pilot project or preparatory action is an initiative of an experimental nature designed to test the feasibility and usefulness of action. It is meant to try different approaches, develop evidence-based strategies to address a problem, identify good practices, and provide policy guidance for the benefit of possible future initiatives in a particular area of health and welfare.

A number of pilot projects have been funded by the EU that explore different approaches to nutrition and physical activity and these are now available for others to learn from.

Public Health threats to air safety

The AIRSAN Project looked at coordinated action in the aviation sector to control public health threats and has developed a range of tools to ensure a well- organised and coherent response. The Project targeted public health and civil aviation authorities, local public health authorities at airports, airport and airline management and medical services across EU member states.

AIRSAN Partners have developed:

  • an AIRSAN Network,
  • AIRSAN Communication Platform,
  • an AIRSAN Bibliography,
  • AIRSAN Guidance Documents, and
  • an AIRSAN Training Tool.

Sustainable Tailored Integrated Care for older people in Europe

The SUSTAIN project aims to improve integrated care for older people living at home with multiple health and social care needs. It will last four years and is divided into three interrelated phases (preparation, research implementation, and translation to products).

A European multidisciplinary partnership has come together to improve established integrated care initiatives for this client group and to ensure that any improvements to the integrated care initiatives are applicable and adaptable to other health systems and regions in Europe.
