Welcome to the Final PERFORMANCE Conference in Brussels!

We will present you the first full meal coming out of a 3D printer. After three years of intense work in the €3 million EU funded project PERFORMANCE all 14 partners present their final results.

Be the first to learn more about the sophisticated PERFORMANCE 3D food printer, which produces nutritionally enriched meals for elderly with swallowing and masticating difficulties. In addition, the complex but simple ordering and logistics system, a new plate design and many other innovations complete the novel nutrition concept.

PERFORMANCE Project
For many of us masticating and swallowing are activities that go as a matter of course. For several frail elderly persons the consumption of food can be an everyday challenge. While in their sunset years and faced with dignified aging can the personalised PERFORMANCE nutrition concept contribute to the health and well-being of elderly consumers facing swallowing and masticating difficulties? The 3D PERFORMANCE food concept prints full meals with even an additional function. They are personally enriched with nutrients?

Location: European pavilion (1st floor), Milano, Italy

Registration for the workshop is now open and the agenda available!

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.
