The Frailty Project is an epidemiological research project with several objectives:

  1. To study the public health impact of frailty (e.g., trends, life-expectancy)
  2. To study mechanisms that explain the relationship between frailty and adverse outcomes
  3. To study the development of frailty in later life, and factors associated with development

In 2019, The Frailty Project was expanded with an additional research project on frailty and vitality among the oldest old.
