Welcome to the GetAMoveOn Network+

Funded by the EPSRC, the GetAMoveOn Network+ brings together experts in human computer interaction, health psychology, behaviour change, sensor networks, data analytics, interactive visualisation, sports and exercise science, and online citizen engagement, with the aim of transforming health through enabling mobility.
