PREVIEW is an acronym of PREVention of diabetes through lifestyle Intervention and population studies in Europe and around the World. The project is a large multi-national diabetes prevention project using two different lines of evidence.
Thus, the project consists of a large 3-y multinational, clinical intervention study in up to 2,500 adults and 150 children/adolescents as well as population studies involving about 170,000 individuals. Data are expected to provide new important insights into the role of different dietary and exercise strategies, sleep, habitual stress and other behavioural and sociological factors.
The project is led by Professor Anne Raben from the University of Copenhagen, and there are 15 partners in the consortium.
The project will run for 6 years starting in January 2013.
The project is funded by the European Union FP 7th, national funds from New Zealand, Australia and Canada as well as the Cambridge Weight Plan (UK).
