J-Age II, the Coordination Action for implementation and alignment activities of the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) “More Years Better Lives – Challenges and Opportunities of Demographic Change”, will support and foster the overall management of the JPI, update the Strategic Research Agenda and support implementation through joint activities between Member States.
Furthermore, the work plan will include dissemination and information exchange with scientific and societal stakeholders, policy makers and research funders as well as an evaluation and monitoring exercise. Ultimately, the project and the JPI seek to stimulate the alignment of relevant national programmes and EU initiatives, strengthen the base of multi-disciplinary and holistic ageing research in Europe and to provide scientific evidence for policy responses to demographic change.
J-Age II is funded by the European Commission in the course of Horizon2020 Programme, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
The Co-ordinator of J-Age II is ZonMw – The Netherlands.
J-Age II has started at the 1st of March 2015 and will finish in the end of February 2018.
