ATHLOS - Ageing Trajectories of Health: Longitudinal Opportunities and Synergies

The objective of the ATHLOS Project is to achieve a better understanding of ageing by identifying patterns of healthy ageing pathways or trajectories, the determinants of those patterns, the critical points in time when changes in trajectories are produced, and to propose timely clinical and public health interventions to optimize healthy ageing. Moreover, a new definition of 'old age' based on many characteristics rather than just the classical chronological definition of age will be used for calculating projections in each specific population and guide policy recommendations. To do so, the Consortium will create a harmonised dataset with over 400,000 individuals collated from existing longitudinal studies of ageing and including information on physical and mental health, biomarkers, life style habits, social environment and participation, among others.

ATHLOS is a five-year project funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement number 635316.

The Consortium is coordinated by Dr Josep Maria Haro (Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu) and consists of 14 partners from 11 European countries.
