PROMISS Newsletter #1 – June 2017
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:
