Project Outputs

Context of the Project Proposal

The rapid demographic ageing is one of the main factors determining future European and global economic development. Life expectancy has risen sharply also in people affected by disabilities, leading to a major challenge for the society, but also to a great opportunity for economic growth and jobs, within the so called "Silver Economy". Ageing and older adults can be seen as a valuable resource that can contribute to society and live actively. This also applies to disabled people, as often in Europe they will access earlier on (around 60 years of age), to a minimum pension that in most cases won’t provide enough income and resources for their own self-subsistence & health care. It is therefore incumbent to create mechanisms to encourage and enable them to remain as long as possible into a work environment.

Training Activities:

After the short-term joint staff training event and the completion of the e-learning course, local training events will take place in each participating country, for the health sector professionals and adult educators
