COMPAR-EU News and Events


On 22nd and 23rd of November, our COMPAR-EU General Project Meeting will take place. All consortium partners will come together in Utrecht to give an update on the current status of every work package and discuss the further project plan.

After completion of milestone 7 “Development of data extraction form, protocol, and guidelines and adaptation of software”, we already had a technical face-to-face meeting on 4th and 5th of October in Utrecht. All researchers that extract data participated, namely FAD, IR-HSCSP, Nivel. UOI attended the meeting via Skype to provide input from the perspective of performing network meta-analysis. At this meeting, IR-HSCSP also led a risk of bias seminar. Another training session will be held on 3rd and 4th of December. Training sessions will be based on real-case RCT data extraction to ensure inter-researcher reliability.

The MooDFOOD project harnessed a multi-centre European consortium with expertise in nutrition, psychology, psychiatry and food-related consumer behaviour to evaluate and test the potential for the prevention and treatment of depression through nutritional strategies.

The project included extensive research into the potential of food, nutrients, dietary patterns, nutritional supplements and food-related behaviours in the prevention of depression, including a randomised controlled trial of 1025 participants, behavioural intervention studies, meta-analysis of large prospective cohorts and extensive literature reviews examining the relationship between food and risk of depression.

MooDFOOD project results will be presented at the final interactive Workshop and Poster Session at 3rd December 2018 in Brussels. Click here for the agenda.
