HATICE is the first major research project following the launch of the European Dementia Prevention Initiative (EDPI) in 2011. Cardiovascular risk factors including hypertension, diabetes, obesity, smoking and lack of physical exercise are common in the elderly and increase the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and dementia.

Main aims of HATICE:
  1. Develop an innovative, interactive internet intervention platform to optimise treatment of cardiovascular disease in the elderly
  2. Test this new intervention in a randomised controlled trial to investigate whether new cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline can be prevented
