The second meeting of the European Commission Expert Group “Skills and Human Resources Development in Sport” took place in Split 11-12 July.
At the end of last year the European Commission launched the health promotion and disease prevention knowledge gateway. The Gateway is a web portal that will provide reliable, independent and up-to date information on topics related to the promotion of health and the prevention of non-communicable diseases.
In the coming months, high quality data on physical inactivity, sedentary lifestyles and the economic cost of non-communicable diseases will be made available in a comprehensive and user friendly way.
The Gateway follows the call for a healthy lifestyle made in Tartu, which sets out a roadmap for promoting healthy lifestyles in Europe.
