Innovation in the fields of nutrition and sport plays a central role in Eat2Move. The projects of Eat2Move are carried out according to a method called 3Vcyclus.
The 3Vcyclus combines investigation, testing and implementation in practice. The cyclus has several steps: Exploratory research (‘Verkennen’ in Dutch), testing in experimental settings (Validate), disseminating knowledge and develop products and services and making these applicable (Valorise). The cycle cuts through the different substantive issues of Eat2Move. This method offers the possibility to identify new needs in the fields of sports and care and to turn these into a new project.
The center of excellence focuses on the development of innovative products and services. Applications are found in elite sports, and in large groups such as recreational athletes and people in a care-setting.
Eat2Move has eight permanent partners: Wageningen University, Hospital Gelderse Vallei, NOC*NSF, HAN University of Applied Sciences, InnoSportNL, Sportcentre Papendal, NIZO food research and FrieslandCampina. The Dutch province of Gelderland supports Eat2Move financially.
Wageningen University is de penvoerder van de samenwerkingspartners. Eat2Move is ontwikkeld op initiatief van de Alliantie Voeding Gelderse Vallei.
Wageningen University is the secretary of the cooperation partners. Eat2Move has been developed at the initiative of the Nutrition Alliance Gelderse Vallei.
