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 1/5 and half of of all 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.
