The Innovage project ended in November 2015 but the website remains online to showcase our activities and accomplishments. Innovage was a three-year project dedicated to social innovations which supported active and healthy ageing.
The project developed and tested, as well as surveyed and catalogued, social innovation that had a solid impact on improving the quality of life and wellbeing of older people. In particular the project aimed to make a major contribution to the EU Horizon 2020 goal of extending healthy life years.
The project’s objectives directly addressed the major barriers to innovation and to achieving the extension of healthy life years across the EU.
Innovage aimed to achieve impact in the public, private and third sectors and was built on the closest possible partnership with end users and stakeholders, including older people themselves.
Its key outputs were four new major social innovations in different EU countries and a new European platform to promote the sustainable implementation of social innovations to promote wellbeing in later life.
The project ran for three years from December 2012 to November 2015.
