Several researchers from the HLCA consortium attended the 10th European Public Health Conference (EPHC) from 1st – 4th November 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden. During the conference, the HLCA members organised several events and presented selected research results.The EHPC conference theme “Sustainable, resilient and healthy communities” brought together representatives from around the world. In addition to presenting its own scientific findings, the HLCA Consortium has organized a pre-conference and various workshops with the Health Promotion Section (HPS) of the European Association for Public Health (EUPHA). Emphasis was put on empirical research results, but also theoretical perspectives and practical effects on research, politics and practice were presented and discussed.
