The 'Crossing Bridges' project funded by DG SANCO aimed to advance the implementation of Health in all Policies (HiAP) approaches in EU Member States. It contributes to the development of practical tools that are required to turn HiAP theory into practice and to make progress on the implementation of HiAP in Europe. Firstly it investigated specific examples of inter-sectorial collaboration to determine what methodologies can be drawn out and developed. Two focus areas (Education and Transport) have been identified for more in depth analysis. Secondly, the project developed the capacities of national and regional Institutes of Public Health to implement HiAP. An assessment to analyse needs and existing practice was undertaken, and an interactive training workshop developed for partners and national trainers on the basis of the outcomes of the assessments and incorporating the methodologies.
