Integrated research on Developmental determinants of Ageing and Longevity


The results iimg 1850n IDEAL have both the potential to influence and possibly reshape treatment and healthcare practices throughout Europe, and to provide leads that can be exploited by the health, food, and pharmaceutical industries. We will make an inventory of the current health care practices and to what extent they are based on the scientific results. Based on this we will seek ways to disseminate the IDEAL results via all available and relevant networks and organizations. We will also use the contacts with industries to facilitate the exploitation of the results with IDEAL.
