The British Nutrition Foundation will coordinate workpackage 6, the dissemination programme which aims initially to increase awareness about the scope of the problem of the metabolic syndrome, the need for action and the aspirations of Lipgene. During the project, BNF will disseminate information arising from Lipgene and its findings to a range of target audiences. The dissemination package also includes a series of conferences and tailored workshops in various EU countries, the development of conference proceedings and tailored web-based materials for various target groups, and an information relay using new and existing networks of communication.
