PROMISS: prevention of protein malnutrition project goes visual!


About 1 in 10 older persons living at home in Europe is at risk of protein malnutrition. The European research project PROMISS, of which AGE Platform Europe is a partner, aims to better understand and ultimately prevent protein energy malnutrition in older persons.

To visualize the PROMISS project, AGE together with the consortium, has produced a number of short videos. The first videos give an overview of the PROMISS project and its first findings, for example that a low protein intake is associated with lower muscle strength, problems with physical performance and problems with mobility. 
Subtitles in English, French, German Italian and Dutch make the videos accessible to a broader audience.





Future videos will provide insights into different partners’ roles and contributions to the project.

All videos can be accessed on the project’s Youtube channel.

You can also visit the PROMISS website to learn more about protein!
