Thanks to a multi-disciplinary international consortium (23 partners from 11 countries), the PROMISS project is eager to:

  • Provide insight in the causal links between diet, physical activity, appetite and malnutrition among older adults;
  • Develop evidence-based dietary and physical activity strategies to prevent malnutrition and enhance active and healthy ageing;
  • Deliver food concepts and products, as well as persuasive technology to support adherence to these strategies.

In this newsletter:

A sneak peek into PROMISS research

  • The lower the protein intake, the greater the risk of developing mobility limitations
  • Vary your activities and perform them regularly in order to age well!
  • Towards new food products and concepts

What do older people think?

What happens beyond research?
