Lecture: Healthy Weight Initiative
The Novo Nordisk Foundation is developing a new national initiative to promote healthy weight among children and adolescents as well as their families. The aim is to reduce the number of children and adolescents in Denmark with overweight. The ambition with the new initiative is to establish a national center for the promotion of healthy weight through collaborative research, innovation and the development of evidence-based interventions and preventive efforts that focus specifically on children and their families. At the lecture, we will share the vision for the centre and some of the initial activities.Read more

The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested in and around the Copenhagen area. Every 4 weeks, on a Thursday evening, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.
This will be a hybrid lecture with the possibility of attending both virtually and physically. Please note that we have a limited capacity for how many we allow to participate physically, and seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Yes. We take oral questions from physical audience and written questions from virtual participants.
You are very welcome to join the ‘Copenhagen Bioscience Cluster’s Linkedin and/or Facebook group. There you will find information about upcoming lectures, and much more.
