This project will develop a comprehensive RTD roadmap for active ageing by consolidating existing roadmaps and by describing and launching a stakeholder co-ordination and consultation mechanism. It will characterise key research challenges and produce a vision for a comprehensive approach in supporting the well-being and socio-economic integration of increasing numbers of senior citizens in Europe.  Further information on this project can be found here: http://www.braidproject.eu/.

This project is an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways Action which aims to foster co-operation between non-commercial and commercial entities on a joint research project about the incorporation of Fundamental Values of the EU in Info-Communication Technology (ICT) for Ageing. ICT gives individuals as well as societies the possibility to improve their lives and to free them from certain constraints. Further information on this project can be found here: http://www.valueageing.eu/.
