Identification of population groups at risk of poverty

In the initial phase of CHANCE the research will strive to identify the population groups at risk of poverty in Europe. Their psycho-social barriers to healthy eating as well as barriers related to agro-food industry and the retailer sector will also be identified. Possible ways to overcome the barriers will be explored.

  • Task 1.1: Identification of population groups at-risk-of-poverty (Task leader: IMR)
  • Task 1.2: Understanding barriers to healthy dietary habits and exploration of effective ways to overcome unhealthy nutrition with consumers (Task leader: VTT)
  • Task 1.3: Understanding barriers to healthy dietary habits and exploration of effective ways to overcome unhealthy nutrition with agro-food industries and retailers (Task leader: UNIBO)
  • Task 1.4: Concordance between food chain actors’ perspectives (Task leader: VU)

Podcast: Listen to work package leader Vaiva Hendrixson, from Vilnius University, explain more about this part of the project.
