The FUTURAGE Road Map for European Ageing Research was formally launched yesterday (Tuesday 18th October) at a conference in the European Parliament in Brussels.
FUTURAGE is a two-year project funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme, to create the definitive road map for ageing research in Europe for the next 10-15 years.
Drawing on experts and specialists from Europe and beyond, the road map represents the most extensive consultation ever conducted in this field and identifies the main priorities on ageing and health from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
Through a chain of events, academic and non-academic stakeholders engaged in a state-of-the-art assessment of research priorities, emerging fields and methods to build consensus on the research priorities in ageing until 2025.
