Physical activity enhances health and prolongs life. In Act4Life we develop, carry out and publish research elucidating the mechanisms behind the health-enhancing effects of physical activity. We also investigate how to best implement physical activity in daily life.

The vision of Act4Life is to prevent inactivity-related diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

The mission of Act4Life is based on biomedical and interdisciplinary research to develop valid and robust strategies promoting health-enhancing physical activity in everyday life.

We value high academic standards, innovation, diversity and a working environment that combines an ambitious and a social atmosphere.
