The Scientific Network

SALTO as an initiative of two universities attaches a great value to a scientifically well founded approach. Therefore it falls back on a large network of scientists of various disciplines. In particular the scientific findings of the Obesity Academy Austria to which both of the project leaders belong are considered in the development.

In order to develop regarding to the target group's needs SALTO organises an experts club. The represented scientists (educationalists, kindergarten teachers, sport scientists, nutritionists, sociologists, etc.) share their knowledge of theory and practice.

Great support is also given to SALTO by the department of psychology (Ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Ardelt-Gattinger, Priv. Doz. Assoz.-Prof. Dr. Jens Blechert) which supports the development of evaluation tools as well as the implementation significantly.
