The MOCIA programme aims at being able to signal an increased risk of cognitive decline and to improve prevention by developing a personalised lifestyle intervention. MOCIA stands for ‘Maintaining Optimal Cognitive function In Ageing’.
As part of a global initiative, we will be testing a multi-domain lifestyle intervention in Dutch older adults. We will focus on individual differences, predictive factors, biological mechanisms, behavioural change and e-Health technology, with the ultimate aim of offering elderly people a personalised intervention at home.
The project is funded by the NWO crossover programme, which has the aim to strengthen the Dutch knowledge and innovation system with public-private partnerships.
The MOCIA public-private partnership consists of various academic institutions and co-financing partners.
