How we can add to the good lives of older people

Over the last decades, a considerable amount of research has been focussed on children and young people who are, of course, our future. But at present more research is going in the direction of promoting the good lives for the elderly – says Professor Inge Tetens, head of the new research centre “Centre for Good Older Lives” at the University of Copenhagen and the Food Culture Association (Madkulturen). In building research-based knowledge, the Centre aims to create a new framework for the older part of life for the individual and for society around food, nutrition, meals, physical capacity and meaningful relationships within an economically sound frame.
