RICH has received 3,2 mill. DKK from TrygFonden for research in children and obesity in the project 'Healthy and Funny' which is taking place in cooperation with the municipality of Odense
TrygFonden donated in November 2011 3,2 mill. DKK to the RICH centre at the Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics at the University of Southern Denmark.
The donation was granted to the centre for the initiation of a study in the effect of an increased effort in physical activity and diet in the fight against obesity.
The effort is to target overweight and obese children, and is a result of multiple years of cooperation between the municipality of Odense and the Institute of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics.
