1st European Society for Prevention Research Conference and Members’ Meeting

The historical first EUSPR conference / members’ meeting took place as a pre-conference session on 10/11 November 2010 during the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) Conference in Amsterdam. Its aim was to bring together researchers from both Europe and the USA, in order to highlight pioneer experiences on the development and evaluation of prevention projects targeting widespread determinants of health inequalities. The conference also represented the occasion for the formal constitution of the EUSPR. Therefore, during the second day the discussion focussed on the EUSPR mission, membership, future actions and alliances, but also issues of organization and administration. The conference was sponsored by the Mentor Foundation.
