User involvement is the principle of involving the final beneficiaries of policies or research projects in the drafting and implementing process in order to make sure their real needs are taken into consideration. As for research projects, the role of AGE varies widely, but our objective in all of them is to voice older people’s perspectives, to effectively involve end-users at all stages, and to ensure the main ethical and legal issues are properly addressed.
