Financial Resources

2016

AGE’s policy activities in 2016 were financed by membership fees and donations (20%) and by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC) of the European Union (DG Justice) (80%).

AGE continued its work on European Research Projects throughout 2016, besides being involved in new proposals. AGE was partner of 20 projects dealing with new technologies, health, accessibility, sustainable mobility and senior tourism. Those projects, financed mainly by FP7, CIP PSP, and H2020 are: Doremi, Escape, Families & Societies, Haivisio, JamToday, Mopact, Prosperity4all, Pace, Smart Care, UCH 2,0, Athlos, Caress, Eurosen,  Frailsafe, I-Prognosis, MobilAge, Off To Spa, Progressive, Promiss, Seed and Sustain.  AGE participation in EU research projects is 100% covered by EU funding.

In addition to the REC programme, AGE was also involved in the AFE INNOVNET project, a European thematic network funded by CIP ICT PSP Programme.  The project started in February 2014 and concluded on 31 January 2016 with the official establishment of the Covenant on Demographic Change. The Covenant was set to become the new EU-wide association gathering local, regional and national authorities, civil society organisations, universities, and businesses that commit to cooperate and implement evidence-based solutions to support active and healthy ageing as a comprehensive answer to Europe's demographic challenge.
