Implementation and Scalability

The SIG aims to build a multidisciplinary community of ISBNPA members interested in Implementation Science related to nutrition, promoting physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour.

This SIG will:
     -  provide a platform to discuss, disseminate evidence and promote networking and collaboration on issues related to implementation and translation research;
     -  support efforts which aim to assist translation of research into practice and policy by moving from research ideas, through feasibility/piloting and randomised controlled trials to widespread real world implementation and translation trials;
     -  support efforts which aim to assist more standardized implementation evaluation and how to measure degree of implementation and sustainability;
     -  provide professional support through exchanging information about relevant conferences, seminars and workshops.
