The preservation of health and quality of life presents a great challenge for our society and for our health care system in particular given the demographic developments, a progressively aging population and the increasing proportion of obese persons.

Prevention, and the development of effective therapies and technological aids, as well as the education of competent specialists require a systemic and multidisciplinary approach where all platforms – from molecules to cells and organisms right up to the environment and social framework must be integrated.

Research at the interface of the engineering, neurological, movement and food sciences as well as biology, medicine and the social sciences is of ever increasing societal and economic importance.
