Abstract

The ageing of Europe's population will be a crucial challenge for the 21st century. Under the Fifth Framework-Programme for Research and Technological Development in the Quality of Life Programme, Key Action 6 on the "Ageing population and their Disabilities" was established to respond to this challenge. The present booklet is a compendium of all research and co-ordination activities supported by Key Action 6 from 1998 to 2002. It summarises the main features of the 121 research and co-ordination projects, which were organised into five action lines:
- Age-related illnesses and health problems;
- Basic processes of physiological ageing;
- Demographic and social policy aspects of population ageing;
- Coping with functional limitations in old age;
- Health and social care services to older people.
