  • First the general rules which represents the base for the financial regulation of the European Union funding and are applicable to all funding mechanisms are four Co-funding rule: meaning that an external co-financing from a source other than EU funds is required (coming from own resources or financial contribution from third parties, like national grants. Non profit rule: the grant may not have the purpose or effect of producing a profit for the beneficiaries, Non retroactivity rule: only costs incurred after the starting date stipulated in the grant agreement can be co-funded Non cumulative rule: only one grant can be awarded for a specific action carried out by a given beneficiary
  • General objective: follow-up the reformulation of the manufactured foods, the analysis of the EU context and the identification and exchange of the best practices in terms of the reduction of the levels of fat, saturated and trans fats, salt and sugar in manufactured foods and information campaigns for consumers. Promote the food reformulation advising and stimulating food producers (SMEs) on the current trend for reformulation Stimulate those involved in food production and preparation to control and reduce the level of fats, salt and sugar in their products. SALUS project also will aim to make consumers aware of the importance and necessity of eating healthier food. he MOVE project aims to identify, qualify and implement good practices in cross-cutting community initiatives to promote health-enhancing physical activity in socio-economically disadvantaged areas. It takes a strong starting point in sport and physical activity stakeholders to build several high-impact cross-cutting partnerships and implement pilot actions with eg municipalities, fitness sector, universities, play ground industry, architects and urban planners – as also reflected in the broad Project Partnership. The MOVE project targets youth, ethnic minorities/immigrants and women/girls in two specific types of socio-economically disadvantaged areas. Doing this, it builds upon a long series of project experiences from related physical activity (often good practice focused) proposals to develop a unique methodology and strong target group focus. With an outreach to both European, National and Local level stakeholders, the MOVE project adds European value to fulfill the objectives of the Second Health Programme by addressing physical activity as an important health determinant; by developing and exchanging best practices within the scope of the programme; and by supporting cooperation to implement these practices (2.2.1, 3.1.1, 3.1.2). The annual work plan contribution falls very clearly under the physical activity call (, and at the same time, the innovative cross-sector partnership-building of the projects is a targeted response to the EU Physical Activity Guidelines, relating to all stakeholders mentioned. The methodology of MOVE is combining a thorough good/best practice identification and valorization with a very strong mobilization and dissemination effort (using among others a targeted web platform and three major conferences) on both European and national level to engage in partnerships to further physical activity. Not least does MOVE implement 15 pilot actions exploiting the best practices and partnerships developed in the project. The outcomes of MOVE are 5 European, 12 national and 60 local level high-relevance, cross-sector partnerships that are committed to promoting physical activity in Europe. Further, 15 pilot actions will add to the body of knowledge and experience that ultimately will enable the disadvantaged target groups to make healthy life style choices in physical activity.
