With the European population growing older, the challenge is to keep an increasing number of seniors across all European countries healthy and active. In Europe, between 13.5 % and 29.7 % of older adults living at home are malnourished or at risk of protein energy malnutrition. PROMISS aims to better understand and ultimately prevent protein energy malnutrition in seniors. Thereby, PROMISS will contribute to improve active and healthy ageing.

PROMISS at the ESPEN Congress 2018 “Nutrition without borders”

With the theme “Nutrition without borders” the ESPEN Congress 2018 (1-4 September 2018, Madrid, Spain) intends to explore new topics in clinical nutrition, in different clinical settings, besides the multidisciplinary and worldwide environment of the Congress.

Working in close collaboration with the ESPEN Committee Members, an attractive program represents an opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, nutritionists, scientists and nurses involved in the field of nutrition and metabolism to meet and discuss cutting edge science in an informal atmosphere, strengthening old and sparkling new collaborations.

PROMISS will be displayed there, thanks to the direct participation of ESPEN as a partner, and VUA as coordinator.

Come and visit us on Booth no. 71 in the Exhibition Hall!
