Highlights from the 22nd European Congress on Obesity 2015

The 22nd European Congress on Obesity (ECO), hosted by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO), took place in Prague, Czech Republic, in May 2015.

Obesity remains a major public health priority in Europe, with prevalence continually increasing, as was highlighted in a presentation by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Their obesity forecast exercise indicated that unless immediate action was taken, the proportion of overweight or obese adults in Europe would rise by 2030.

ECO raises awareness of the issue, and provides a platform to promote, inform and engage in the latest scientific developments in the field. The varied programme drew over 1,200 participants from 73 countries worldwide, and featured a range of obesity-related topics. EUFIC interviewed seven of the speakers at the conference, who summarised their research findings.
