MaNuEL will create a network of dedicated scientists to build better research capacity on malnutrition across Europe. It will contribute to a common / shared understanding regarding the definition of malnutrition, the aetiology and prevalence of malnutrition in older persons, preferred screening tools, and effective interventions for malnutrition in older persons from different health care settings. MaNuEL will perform systematic literature reviews to complete the present fragmentary picture on malnutrition and to identify potential knowledge gaps. Furthermore, MaNuEL will bring together and harmonize transnational datasets from nutritional intervention trials and observational studies to perform secondary analyses and build a research infrastructure for future research questions. Finally, MaNuEL will provide insight in current clinical practice, policies, and health professionals education on malnutrition and will identify best practice examples and recommendations for improvement
