BEATS is an interdisciplinary and multi-sector research programme founded as a partnership between academia, schools, local government and the wider community.

BEATS Research Programme is examining individual, social, environmental and policy influences on adolescents' active transport (walking or cycling) to school. This research is designed to advance scientific knowledge and provide service to the government, local community and schools. The programme has been designed and implemented using a community-based participatory approach with the sustained involvement of key stakeholders.
