ENGAGE (European Network for Genetic and Genomic Epidemiology) is a research project funded with 12 million euros by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme-Health Theme. The project duration is five years, starting from January 1st, 2008. ENGAGE aims to translate the wealth of data emerging from large-scale research in genetic and genomic epidemiology from European (and other) population cohorts into information relevant to future clinical applications. The concept of ENGAGE is to enable European researchers to identify large numbers of novel susceptibility genes that influence metabolic, behavioural and cardiovascular traits, and to study the interactions between genes and life style factors.


The overall objectives of ENGAGE are to:
- Establish a supranational framework for research into genetic and genomic epidemiology
- Investigate the origins and causes of diseases
- Improve the sharing and integration of large data sets
- Explore key methodological questions to European research
- Facilitate translation of findings to the clinical area
