Governing Obesity - Obesity Research – University of Copenhagen

Governing Obesity was set up to provide novel means for governing obesity and its consequences via effective interventions at the societal and individual level, from an early stage towards the morbidly obese individuals, while avoiding unintended and negative effects.

Governing Obesity is one of 18 research initiatives established in 2013 as part of the University of Copenhagen Excellence Programme for Interdisciplinary Research (2016).
