What’s SIforAGE?

SIforAGE (Social Innovation on Active and Healthy Ageing for Sustainable Economic Growth) is a collaborative project aiming to strengthen the cooperation of all those interested and committed to improve the welfare of older people. We want to enhance the competitiveness of the European Union regarding the promotion of innovative products for longer and better lives, but also spreading the need for elderly to actively participate in social life.
 

Why is SiforAGE needed?

We are living much more years than before and our life expectancy is going to keep growing. Because being old is not anymore a synonym of inevitable decline, loneliness, dependency and disability, we aim to promote a new view of elderly people as active citizens able to offer great benefits to our societies.

Who is involved in the project?

We are a team of twenty partners from Europe, Brazil, Turkey and India. Our members include universities, care centers, private firms, public practitioners, civil society organizations and think-tanks

“Theirs is the customary human reaction when confronted with innovation: to flounder about attempting to adapt old responses to new situations or to simply condemn or ignore the harbingers of change - a practice refined by the Chinese emperors, who used to execute messengers bringing bad news. The new technological environments generate the most pain among those least prepared to alter their old value structures."
