INDEED - Updates and events from the first half of 2020




Dear Readers,

The INDEED project is taking big steps towards achieving its aims – particularly in regards to the multimedia online platform and the corresponding pilot workshops.
Through the great collaboration in the consortium, the multimedia online platform ( will launch in the next weeks for the English version. The other four language versions will follow subsequently. As the pilot workshops had to be postponed by several months due to the current situation, the pilot actions are now planned for late 2020/early 2021.

Below, please find a selection of INDEED’s highlights from different project countries, our list of upcoming events, an update of current policy developments as well as an article about “Physical activity for ageing people who experience cognitive changes” from Prof. Lautenschlager who is an INDEED supporter from Australia.

research news


Prof Nicola Lautenschlager, Dr Amit Lampit, University of Melbourne:
“Physical activity for ageing people who experience cognitive changes”

There is strong evidence from research that old people with cognitive impairment can successfully change their physical activity related health behavior with support from others and can exercise safely and with joy. However, especially for older people with chronic health conditions or who are currently sedentary, no new physical activity program should be started without consulting the general practitioner to make sure this is planned and executed in a safe way.
