Funding possibilities to promote active ageing

The Committee of the Regions, AGE Platform Europe and the European Commission
have issued a brochure presenting EU funding possibilities for regional and
local initiatives to promote active ageing and solidarity between generations.
The brochure aims to make a particular contribution to the European Year for
Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012.

The majority of initiatives to promote active ageing - throughout 2012 and
onwards - will be taken without financial support from the EU, but in some
cases EU funding will play a role.

The brochure shows what resources are available and invites regional and local
stakeholders to make the best possible use of them, preferably working in
partnerships involving several countries. The brochure presents numerous
examples of projects which have received EU funding. It also includes short
presentations of the most relevant EU funding programmes to support new active
ageing projects.
