MEMTRAIN – Project Overview
- To share expertise in the field of brain training and physical exercise for older people (55+) to promote healthy ageing.
- To prevent the degeneration of memory for healthy older people.
- To create a training manual which includes three 10-week courses combining sport and memory games as well as chapters on the science behind the idea and safety, motavtion and first aid training tips.
The project will conduct a scientific study on the benefits of linking exercise with brain training to promote healthy ageing and good memory for older adults (55+). At the same time experts in the fields of sport and brain training, who have specific experience in creating programmes for older adults will share their knowledge and create a training manual. This manual will be tested throughout Europe in partner’s home countries during a 10-week training course. Throughout the course surveys and questionnaires will be given to participants and trainers and the data gained from this will be used to better inform the scientific study and to add further substance/ lessons learned to the training manual.
We are looking forward to a successful project and we are moving on to the next phase of the project which will be to submit the Erasmus+ KA2 application by 31st March, 2016.
