AGE Platform Europe is a European Network of more than 165 organizations of people aged 50+ representing about 30 million older people across the EU-27 and candidate countries. AGE aims at voicing and promoting the interests of senior citizens (150 millions inhabitants aged 50+ in the European Union) and at raising awareness on the issues that concern them most. AGE Platform Europe aims to serve as a bridge between its member organizations and the EU Institutions, to ensure that older people’s issues are on the EU agenda and their views are taken on board in EU policy development. To support AGE policy work on ICT and accessibility, an Expert Group on Universal Accessibility and Independent Living was established. AGE is involved in various research projects on ICT, eInclusion, eHealth and mobility, bringing evidence of the needs of the older users.

AGE will work principally on work package 5 with awareness raising activities and user empowerment. AGE will be responsible for the newsletter.
