In March 2020 the Healthy Boost Project had a meeting in Helsinki. During the meeting we had a chance to shoot some videos where project partners share their views on project's actions. Videos are published on Healthy Boost Facebook page and you can also watch them here:
Urban Labs for Better Health for All in the Baltic Sea Region – Boosting cross-sectoral cooperation for health and well-being in the cities
Healthy Boost is a project about cross-sectoral cooperation within cities and between city administrations, city residents and SMEs and other relevant stakeholders. The project is funded by Interreg Baltic Sea Region. Together with 14 partners from seven different countries, it seeks methods and tools to do cross-sectoral cooperation better for more holistic approach to health promotion.
Here you can find information regarding the project news, materials and partners.
Since March, covid-19 restrictions have forced Healthy Boost partners to find new ways of working together online – as has been the case for rest of Europe. How have our partners managed in this? What is transnational cooperation in times of epidemic?
On the 12th-13th of November 2019, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU) Health Research Institute researchers’ team hosted an international training for other partners of the project. Two-day training gathered 45 participants from six project countries (Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, and Finland). The training was designed to innovatively and practically test the model for cross-sectoral cooperation prepared by Latvian scientists (Riga Stradiņš University), as well as integrate it into further activities of the “Healthy Boost” project.
