A Cross-border Multidisciplinary and Intersectorial Network

What we are aiming for.


A Cross-border Multidisciplinary and Intersectorial Network bringing together researchers from different disciplines, nutritionists, clinical personnel, assistance services, administration, business associations, food-production businesses, etc.


Objective

A CROSS-BORDER MULTIDISCIPLINARY AND INTERSECTORIAL NETWORK

  • ACTIVITY 01


    ASSESSING THE CURRENT SITUATION

    • Knowing the risk and prevalence of malnutrition in elderly people
    •     
    • Assessing the possible relationships between diet and metabolic pathology in elderly people.
    •     
    • Assessing the relationships between malnutrition and neuro-cognitive functions.
  • ACTIVITY 02


    DESIGNING INTERVENTION STRATEGIES

    • o Developing new foods and nutritional supplements with the food production industry that are geared towards covering deficits while catering to the preferences of the elderly population.
    •     
    • o Designing adapted nutritional intervention strategies based on the Atlantic diet to respond to the nutritional deficiencies and imbalances identified in this segment of the population.
  • ACTIVITY  03


    IMPLEMENTING STRATEGIES

    Developing mechanisms and protocols to monitor and assess nutritional interventions.
  • ACTIVITY  04


    SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT AND PROJECTION

    • Assessing the increase in individual well-being resulting from the modifications in the nutritional status control system and the proposed food supply.
    • Assessing the health and social cost.
    •     
    • Assessing the global economic impact of the proposed modifications, both in the production of raw materials and foods and in the management of the food supply system.
