Obesity causes disease and increases health care costs. Healthy eating is one of the solutions. Companies, care givers and politicians all anticipate on this trend. Maastricht University has a lot of expertise to contribute in a broad sense to the process of nutritional health claims regulation.


Anita Jansen, professor of Psychology and eating Disorders

Eatwell is a unique opportunity for Maastricht University. The four faculties each host many top scientists and we have distinct laboratory facilities and support. Joining forces will result in an internationally recognized top institute. Maastricht University: leading in eating! A nice challenge.


Jos Lemmink, professor of Marketing


People can choose between numerous foods and drinks. We study consumer behaviour in our university from different viewpoints that will be nicely integrated in eatwell. At a higher level eatwell aims to stimulate a healthy lifestyle throughout life. This has an influence on our pensions, life insurance and the labour market. These challenges are also tackled in Maastricht.
