Workshop Dietary Strategies for a Healthy Aging

ExpoMilano 2015 – Workshop Dietary Strategies for a Healthy Aging

18th May 2015 – 11.00-14.00 (Registration open until APRIL 10th)

The proportion of elderly people over 65 years in Europe is predicted to increase from 25% to 40% by 2030, making it one of society’s greatest upcoming challenges.


How to prevent functional decline and prolong quality of life?
What is the effect of diet on ageing?
We need to understand the beneficial and harmful dietary factors as well as the specific needs and habits of the elderly population group.

The workshop will present past and future EU funded research projects that contribute to a better understanding of nutritional needs for a better quality of life while ageing.

A roundtable discussion will follow for stakeholders to exchange ideas on dietary strategies and innovation potential.

Registration open until APRIL 10th
