English term or phrase:Project PATAS
A survey entitled "Project PATAS", what does the PATAS mean?
"Pata fea" is a famous tale told by Christian Andersen: 丑小鸭. "Pata de cerdo" is a dish: 猪脚. "Un hombre de mala pata" is a 倒霉鬼. "Un pata de lana" is the opposite of 红颜知己. "El patas" - that's the devil. Many meanings! You need to specify the abbreviation.
I personally believe PATAS is an acronym of the name of a research study on ageing or something related to ageing, e.g. Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). However, I really have no idea of what PATAS means.
