The SUNRISE research project was approved for funding by the HORIZON EUROPE programme and aims to co-create, implement and evaluate an innovative digitally-enhanced life-skills programme for primary prevention of cancer through sustainable health behavior change in adolescents, tailored to their socio-economic, cultural and environmental diversities. SUNRISE will combine an established, evidence-based digital solution for smoking prevention, with novel intervention approaches such as peer social media campaigns, advertising literacy training, educational games, and social robot platforms, to take cancer prevention approaches for adolescents in the EU to the next level.

The project consists of 19 partners from 10 countries of the European Union, namely Greece (coordinator), Switzerland, Cyprus, Belgium, Romania, Slovenia, Estonia, Spain, Portugal, Italy. Australia is also involved in the project.

The project has a duration of 52 months and its kick-off meeting took place at the premises of the Centre for Research and Technological Development (CERTH) in Thessaloniki, on 17 and 18 January 2024. More information about the project can be found here.
