Overcoming the Barriers and Seizing the Opportunities for Active Ageing Policies in Europe

The ActivAge project analyses the social, political and economic realities facing active ageing policies in Europe. By comparing European labour markets, pension systems and health care provisions, the ActivAge project highlights ways of overcoming the barriers and seizing the opportunities for European active ageing policies.

The overall aim of the ActivAge project is to identify and analyse the socio-institutional, economic, political realities facing the implementation of active ageing policies in Europe.
This implies the following:

  • Chart and analyse the existing active ageing policy landscape in Europe.
  • Identify and outline the barriers to and opportunities for implementing active ageing policies in Europe.
  • Highlight and explore means of overcoming barriers and seizing opportunities for active ageing policies in Europe
