This 2.5 million project funded by the European Regional Development Fund's Interreg 2 Mers programme aimed to keep the ageing population independent for longer in their own or chosen home, increasing their quality of life and safety, and improving their environment.
AGE'IN was led by the Boulogne sur mer Développement Côte d'Opale (BDCO) in France. The project included house adaptations and the development of a local ecosystem centred around the ageing population and ended in October 2022. For further information see the AGE’IN website or contact
Dr Marco Palomino.
AGE'IN for companies
Our evaluation support services will provide access to state-of-the-art technology for companies to test their products with lead users.
Benefit from UX and UI evaluation, technological support, development of pilots and demonstration of prototypes.
AGE'IN for the public
Our evaluation of assistive devices and robots will let us give you experience-based recommendations on products available in the market to support independent living.
Based on continuous market research and our work with pioneer companies in the field, AGE’IN will provide a comprehensive up-to-date review of technology to improve the lives of our elderly generation.
AGE’IN partners are experienced in facing common challenges within ageing, lack of actions towards the loss of autonomy and inappropriate housing conditions. Pooling together resources and sharing knowledge and good practices are crucial to reducing the existing gap between France and the UK on one hand and Belgium and the Netherlands on the other hand, with respect to the share of housing appropriated for elderly.
