NIVEL assesses different programmes and campaigns for prevention, sports, exercise and good health. An example of this is the Dutch National Action Plan for Sports and Exercise. At the moment, NIVEL is drawing up an overview of exercise interventions with financial support from this national action plan. This overview indicates these interventions’ chances of success in getting people who aren’t active enough to start exercising and keep it up. In the next few years, NIVEL will assess the effects of a number of sports projects. These projects are being initiated by sporting associations and aim to increase participants’ level of exercise. In future these studies (such as assessments of exercise programmes) will be expanded further. NIVEL participates in several international projects aiming to chart the health, physical activity and nutrition of children in several countries.
