IPEN is the International Physical Activity and the Environment Network. It was launched by Professor Jim Sallis (USA), Dr Ilse DeBourdeaudhuij (Belgium) and Professor Neville Owen (Australia) at the International Congress of Behavioral Medicine in Mainz Germany in August 2004.

The network aims to:

  • increase communication and collaboration between researchers investigating environmental correlates of physical activity
  • stimulate research in physical activity and the environment
  • recommend common methods and measures
  • support researchers through sharing of information, feedback, letters of support etc.
  • bring together data from multiple countries for joint analyses
  • aid in the publication of data through papers, special journal issues, symposia etc.
For more information, go to Background. We encourage researchers to join us.
