About the project
Targeting challenges of active ageing

According to the World Health Organisation, more than 360 million people worldwide suffer from hearing loss. Approximately one third of the population over 65 years old is affected by age-related hearing loss, also known as presbycusis, making it the second most common cause of disability in older people. There is no restorative treatment for deafness but functional replacement by means of prosthesis. Therefore, prevention and treatment of hearing loss is an unmet medical need.

It is essential for Europe future aged population to have well-trained people available to understand hearing loss from a general perspective. According to this, the foreseen secondments and training activities will involve a total of 15 experienced and early-stage researchers.

TARGEAR project will develop a stronger biomedical research in hearing loss for a better future for the deaf people.
