Goldenworkers - ICT for promoting active ageing at work (2)

The project started in October 2011 and ended in December 2012.

Project No. 288124

 

Emerging technologies, new models of extending professional active life and novel application scenarios in the area of ICT for active ageing at work

2012 has been designated by the European Commission as the “European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations”. Active ageing includes creating more opportunities for older people to continue working and to keep contributing to society through volunteering, however, these ambitions need to be supported by a wide range of policies at all levels of governance.

The main goal of the EU project "Goldenworkers" was to identify emerging technologies and socio-economic trends, new models of extending professional active life and novel application scenarios in the area of ICT for active ageing at work, leading to the definition of a beyond of the state-of-the-art research agenda, fully embraced by research and practice community.

Co-financed by the European 7th Framework Programme, the project built a roadmap for ICT adoption in the field of active ageing at work:

  • Towards the research community: to define research directions in the field of ICT for active ageing at work

  • Towards companies and public services organizations: to define an action plan going forward to adapt companies and society to the new demographic, economic and social reality

  • Towards policy makers: to provide recommendations on policy and public service design to integrate ageing workers into society through the innovative use of ICT. is no longer available.
