Our projects

AGE is committed to share the perspective of older people with research, industrial, and NGO partners, by directly involving older people in research projects and rooting for the genuine implementation of co-design and participatory approaches.

Equally, we aim at bringing research closer to the older people, by translating in user-friendly terms the scientific findings and by updating its members and experts on the most recent research findings.

Our advocacy work is based on evidence gathered, among other processes, thanks to our involvement in various research projects. We convey the most recent outcomes of European research to decision-makers, providing scientific evidence able to steer the policy process.

Through our experience in research projects, we can provide training to our members and support their capacity to join European projects.

This page presents the ongoing and past EU-funded projects in which AGE has been involved.
