Joint Project VorteilJena

With the development, evaluation and production of practical aids for school actors, employees in companies and older people, the BMBF joint project VorteilJena aims to open up new ways of promoting health and to prevent modern widespread diseases such as depression and obesity.

In addition to the 4 service regions Chemnitz+, FISnet (Augsburg/Swabia), PNO (Prevention Network Ortenaukreis) and QuartiersNETZ (Ruhrgebiet), VorteilJena was selected as a health region in a two-stage procedure and started on 1 October 2014 with 8 research sub-projects at the University Hospital Jena (UKJ), the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU) and the Ernst Abbe University Jena (EAH), in order to conduct research into the relationship between social participation and the major health problems of our time.
