Deliverables

"Guidelines #1"

Guidelines on nutritional versus exercise lifestyle education to the general public and patients

Technology application notes

Optimized protocols and technology application notes for: a) Use of mid-range IR profiling in plasma to find NAFLD/NASH specific signatures which can be used for diagnostics. b) Detection of markers of liver necroptosis or miRNA in plasma through specific detection kits.

Final outreach report

A final outreach report, containing a description of all outreach initiatives, with feedback from the public, appropriate metrics, photos (and additional videos) will be prepared by month 54.

Presentation of scientific data (WP4)

Presentation of scientific data in: a) scientific meetings, as oral communications (3 predicted) b) scientific meetings, as poster presentations (3 predicted) c) peer-reviewed manuscripts (4 predicted) The final report at month 54 will include copies of each item.

"Reports on Workshops (#1-4)"

Reports will be produced after each workshop containing the main activities and take home-messages. The time at which these reports will be produced will vary, since they will be included in major meetings in Europe, including the Annual Meeting of the European Society for Clinical investigation.

Comics and animations

During the FOIE GRAS programme, it is expected to produce 5 different comics of different lenghts, as well as 1 video animation for educational purposes. These will focus in distinct topics including diet and incidence of fatty liver disease, healthy lifestyles, basic notions on metabolism, as well as other topics. The animation will be ready by week 42, while comics will be ready on weeks 24, 30, 36, 42, 48.

Intelectual Property Protection

Patents** intestinal permeability assays (WP-3), antibody-based kits for GLP-1 (WP2), human oxidized albumin(WP4) and markers of liver damage (WP3) or IR-based methodologies to stratify NAFLD (WP3). Managed by WP7

FOIE GRAS public website

A public website will be prepared open to the general public and demonstrating the general activities of the consortium plus scientific data originating from the programme biographies from the involved reserachers important links etc

Supervisory Board of the network

Establishment of the Supervisoty Board for the FOIE GRAS consortium

"Sports & public engagement (#1 to #6)"

Events aimed at the general public will be produced in the different countries of the consortium. These may include: 1) Researcher’s Night-like events 2) Visits of researchers to schools 3) Presentations of researchers at science centers 4) Open lab days 5) public health initiatives trough physical activity involving adults and children (e.g. racing, marathons) 6) public awareness in sports, e.g., principal football leagues in the countries involved in the consortium

"Public media dissemination #1 to #8"

We expect that at least 8 diffrent deliverables will be produced based on press reports focusing on particular aspects of the FOIE GRAS research programme. We expect that media outlets will pick up the press releases and perform media articles, including interviews with involved scientists and ESRs.
