Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is a brochure for the EERA-AGE project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). EERA-AGE network was established to bring together research programmes and funders from 14 European countries which were active in research into ageing. A systematic process of mapping activity, identifying and sharing good practice and defining common objectives and mechanisms should lead to joint research activities under the management of a permanent forum of national research programme managers.

In the first phase, national coordinators were appointed to map research activities and good practices within each partner country, and then attention shifted to strategic activities with the establishment of expert groups. Furthermore, an action plan for joint calls for proposals, programme promotion, evaluation and exchanges was prepared and finally, a draft cooperation agreement for the co-funding of ageing research programmes was prepared.
