A research consortium for an interactive knowledge exchange within health promotion

The CAPITAL4HEALTH consortium aims to develop and research capabilities for active lifestyles among different population target groups and among professional target groups as well as the structural capacities located at the organizational and system level through an interactive knowledge-to-action approach. It is a regionally based, transdisciplinary consortium from research institutions (university and non- university-based, national and international), policy and practice partners. A number of empirical projects develop, implement, and evaluate interventions to promote capabilities among different age groups and among relevant professional target groups as well as capacities at organizational and system level in relevant settings to sustainably implement those interventions into routine services.
Two cross-cutting projects on (a) concepts and methods of capability development and interactive knowledge-to-action and (b) evaluation of the development of capabilities aim to contribute to health promotion research in the fields of theory- building, methodological enhancement and evaluation.
