This study is a collaboration between by the University of Otago, the Dunedin Secondary Schools' Partnership, Dunedin City Council and Auckland University of Technology.

The BEATS-2 Study will be conducted in Dunedin secondary schools in 2021 and is an extension of the Dunedin’s BEATS Study (2013-2017). A summary of the published BEATS Study findings to date is available here.
