The Joint Programming Initiative "A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life" (JPI HDHL) is a partnership between Member States and Associated Countries of the European Union that put together trans-disciplinary expertise, knowledge, facilities and approaches, ranging from blue sky research to large population studies and controlled trials to investigate the relationship between diet, exercise and health. The vision of the JPI HDHL is that by the year 2030 all Europeans will have not only the adequate knowledge and motivation, but also the opportunity and accessibility to consume a healthy diet from a variety of foods, have healthy levels of physical activity and that the incidence of lifestyle -related diseases will have decreased significantly.

Call objectives:

The goals of the call are:

  • To support multinational, collaborative research projects that encourage the development of improved methods and tools designed to assess and monitor diet and physical activity in order to help promote a healthier lifestyle.
  • To support proposals that are multidisciplinary, combining different scientific approaches and methods.

Call options:

The proposals should address at least one of the following topics:

  • The development of improved methods for dietary assessment using new technologies, this can for example include ICT tools, unobtrusive data, food purchases, etc.;
  • The further development of existing/identified biomarkers for food intake (e.g. combination of existing biomarkers to assess eating patterns and/or diet composition; validation of identified biomarkers in the background of influencing factors like gender, individual specific variations or genotype);
  • Identification of biomarkers of physical activities (sedentary and sleep behavior) including the first step(s) of validation;
  • Approaches for scientific application of commercially available device-based methods for objective assessment of physical activity (also sedentary and sleep behavior) as well as develop approaches to handle, aggregate and analyse such data in diverse populations;
  • The development of integrative tools to assess and monitor both dietary intake and physical activity.


Eligible costs and funding provisions may vary according to the respective funding organization's regulations. Applicants must refer and adhere to their own specific national regulations and scientific remits as detailed in the National Announcements.



Eligibility of the partners is subject to national/regional regulations of the individual funding organisations and may therefore vary. Only transnational projects will be funded;

  • Consortium must include a minimum of three eligible partners asking for funding from three different countries.
  • The maximum of countries participating in the consortium is of 6 project partners.
  • No more than two eligible partners from the same country will be accepted.
  • A maximum of two collaborators may participate in the projects if they clearly demonstrate and added value to the consortium and are able to secure their own funding.

The proposals may be submitted by applicants working in universities or other higher education institutions, non-university public or private research institutions, hospitals and other health care settings, commercial companies (in particular small and medium-size enterprises) or other types of stakeholder organisations.

Participating countries: Austria; Belgium; Czech Republic; France; Germany; Ireland; Latvia; Spain.



There will be a two-stage submission procedure:

  • Pre-proposals; submission deadline: March 31st, 2021.
  • Full proposals; submission deadline: July 22nd, 2021.

Pre-proposals and full proposals. Both pre- and full proposals must be written in English and must be submitted to the Joint Call Secretariat by the project coordinator through the JPI HDHL electronic submission system exclusively.
