: Based on a better understanding of the mechanisms of the ageing process, dietary strategies to prevent and treat malnutrition in the elderly (living at home, in nursing homes, hospitals, and/or emergencies) should be developed. Dietary recommendations to prevent functional decline should be developed, with the aim of improving appetite and the health and the quality of life of the elderly. A holistic strategy to prevent malnutrition should be developed, and could include, amongst others, the role of nutrients (including those from marine sources where relevant) in the human organism (their bioavailability and interactions), the gut microbiome, food preparation at home, and a better understanding of the role of the physical and social environment (such as social networks). Proposals should address responsible research and innovation aspects by taking account of specific nutritional requirements, dietary behaviours and preferences, sensory aspects, the gender dimension, ethical, socio-economic and cultural aspects. Proposals could include the development of smarter and more intelligent devices for the monitoring of food intake. In line with the objectives of the EU strategy for international cooperation in research and innovation and in particular with the implementation of the International KBBE Forum priorities, proposals are encouraged to include third country participants, especially those established in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and/or the United States. Relevant stakeholders, including industry and SMEs, should be involved.
