The Project – Explanation
The five-year project CRISP (2019-2023) investigates cognitive ageing and dementia from a life course and social perspective, with a particular focus on inequalities related to education and gender. By understanding better how to create environments that enable the development of cognitive reserve over the life course, we will be able to make recommendations to policymakers in the domains of education and work. By improving current knowledge on who is at particular risk of cognitive decline, and who will benefit from lifestyle interventions, we will be able to identify vulnerable individuals and ways to support the delaying of cognitive decline. Ideally, we will be able to make recommendations for behavior changes in order to decrease risk of cognitive decline. This project receives funding from the European Research Council (grant agreement no. 803239).
