Project details

Start date: 03/2010
End date: 02/2012

Description: The 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. BRAID responds to the apparent need to consolidate the various existing perspectives, plans, roadmaps and research and to coordinate effectively the stakeholders in ICT and Ageing. It will utilise knowledge repositories and stakeholder networks to create a self-sustaining, dynamic strategic mechanism for overcoming the fragmentation that has plagued e-inclusion and for improving co-ordination and collaboration among stakeholders.
