The aim of this project is to investigate how to reach relevant patient groups for primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, automated intervention tools and feedback systems shall be developed which can be easily used in CVD prevention studies to increase motivation and adherence to life-style changes. Additionally, pilot studies and RCTs will be conducted to reduce sedentary behaviour as one major cardiovascular risk factor and to increase daily physical activity. A W2 professorship will be established to provide profound knowledge for prevention and behavioural change approaches e.g. exercise training and to support the other partner side projects especially those dealing with heart failure and coronary heart disease.
