The SIforAGE International Conference
Envisioning a New World: Social Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing
Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain)
19th, 20th, and 21st October 2016.
The SIforAGE Project – Social Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing for Sustainable Economic Growth (7th Framework Programme of the European Commission) – has focused mainly on strategies for: healthier ageing; societal participation and inequalities; policy-making for ageing communities; services and new technologies for elderly people; social innovation programmes; decision-making, training, and ethics; the presentation and distribution of innovative, ageing-related products, measuring social impact of research on ageing; service solutions for elderly people; and cultural and literary creativity as innovation for social change.
The SIforAGE research results, together with the findings of researchers presenting papers at the Conference, will provide a vision of the nature of society and the quality of life to be expected in the near future – a new world, a new reality – at a time when global, generational imbalances are on the brink of further aggravation.
The Conference convenors welcome proposals for paper and poster presentations on these and related topics. Abstracts (max. 300 words), together with a short bio (max. 200 words), should be sent as email attachments to by 30th April 2016.
