Innovation for an active ageing labour force

The growth of the ageing population in the EU is starting to create significant labour shortages. As a consequence, there is great need to find solutions that resolve future production problems. The application of innovative technologies such as robotics, smart working instruments and immersive virtual reality technology to preserve productivity, quality and safety of the ageing labour force is one solution. These technologies, which are in growing demand on the production side, can better integrate the high-level experience and specific skills of ageing workers. The EU-funded MAIA project will establish a pioneering research and innovation staff exchange network to assess the needs of production systems and the needs created by the ageing workforce in manufacturing.
