MEDIET4ALL: 2.3 million euros to promote a healthy Mediterranean lifestyle

JGU coordinates the “MEDIET4ALL” project as part of the EU PRIMA program.


Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) coordinates the research and innovation PRIMA project “MEDIET4ALL”, which involves 10 partners from 8 countries and has a total budget of EUR 2.3 million. The project will start shortly, on June 1, 2023, for a period of 3 years.

Building on the multidisciplinary (e.g. science, engineering and humanities) expertise of the MEDIET4ALL consortium, the present joint project aims to support the transition from an unhealthy lifestyle (e.g. sedentary lifestyle, extremely processed food, etc.) to a modern and sustainable MEDLifestyle through the joint implementation of best practices and innovative solutions to improve the convenience, modernity, competitiveness and durability of MEDIET and the adherence to the healthy lifestyle in modern societies.
