BioNut researcher has received SEK 4.6 million in research grant from FORTE for a project on “Effects of increased ultra-processed food advertisement (outdoors and digital) exposure on behaviours associated with obesity development in Swedish adolescents, evaluated in a socioeconomic context.”

We wish to congratulate researcher Ioannis Ioakeimidis and his team at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition who has received SEK 4.62 million in research grant from FORTE.

The project “Effects of increased ultra-processed food advertisement (outdoors and digital) exposure on behaviours associated with obesity development in Swedish adolescents, evaluated in a socioeconomic context” has a strong potential to support unique new strategies for public interventions and policies, promoting population health and limiting social inequalities.
