Our average life expectancy is only getting longer – at a rate of one year every four years for the last two decades – and the average age of Europe’s population is constantly growing, but ageing remains a question that we would all like to put off thinking about. The time has come to take the bull by the horns and if we must all face the fact that we age, let’s make sure we age well!If the question of ageing well concerns each one of us, it is especially necessary for scientists, food and nutrition companies and health professionals to take up this challenge. Much progress remains to be made in the area of maintaining good health, quality of life and wellness. Loss of sensory functions and ageing, the effects of probiotics on cardiovascular risk, nutrigenetics andnutrigenomics of lipids and proteins, the evolution with age of perceptions of food and health, seniors’ behavioural aspects in relation to nutrition, new dietary models as inspiration for innovation... these are just some of the exciting topics that will provide you with a fi rst response to understanding the expectations of today’s and tomorrow’s seniors while also suggesting diet-based compensatory strategies.2012 has indeed been declared the “European year of active ageing” so naturally Vitagora® has invited the Burgundy and Franche-Comté Interregional Gerontology Cluster to be co-organiser of this 7th edition of the Taste-Nutrition-Health International Congress.One again, we hope to welcome you to Dijon next March 20th and 21st so that our international experts in the sciences of taste and nutrition-health can join you – scientists, companies and health professionals – in rising to the challenge of ageing well.
