RSU Participates in International Meeting of the Healthy Boost Project in Kaunas
A training session on how to use a model for cross-sectoral cooperation developed by researchers at the Institute of Public Health of Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) took place in Kaunas, Lithuania, on November 12-13. This session was part of the European Union Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme’s project ‘Urban Labs for Better Health for All in the Baltic Sea Region – boosting cross-sectoral cooperation for health and wellbeing in the cities (Healthy Boost)’.
The training in Kaunas was conducted by representatives from the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences. The training was aimed to show the project’s partners and staff from various municipalities the practical application and implementation of the cross-sectoral cooperation facilitation model. At a later stage of the project, the applicability of the model to promote cross-sectoral cooperation, will be tested in different municipalities across the project’s partner countries.
The RSU Institute of Public Health was represented at the meeting by the project’s lead researcher, Lauma Spriņģe, and researcher Elīna Vrobļevska.
