The PULSE project and the exhibition ‘PULSE – Everyday Life Turned Upside Down’ which has been part of the programme at the Danish science museum Experimentarium since spring 2015 has been nominated as a promising practice example by RRI, Responsible Research Innovation in the EU. RRI is part of the European Research and Innovation programme HORIZON2020 and has been established to ensure that the conducted research is relevant to and involves the community.

The project has been nominated because it is a good example of how effective research can be conducted in a fun and creative way and involve the users e.g. as a hybrid between science exhibition and life style interventions.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation is supporting the PULSE project with a grant of DKK 33 million over 5 years. The Experimentarium manages the project in collaboration with Health Promotion Research at Steno Diabetes Center as its main partner.
