HealthSense is a multi-centre shared cost research project in sensory and consumer sciences. This project was initiated in response to changing population demographics, which predict a significant increase in the older age group. The primary objective of HealthSense is to determine accurately the effects of ageing on the perceptual abilities of the sensory systems, and ultimately how age-related change determines sensory preferences and food choice. The project is carried out by 24 participating institutes located in 10 different European countries. The project is funded by the European Commission Quality of Life Fifth Framework Programme (QLKI-CT-1999-00010).
