Bridging Research in Ageing and ICT Development (BRAID) was an 
EU FP7 Support Action funded within the specific programme "Cooperation" and the research theme "ICT" of the 7th European Framework Programme (Objective ICT-2009.7.1 ICT & Ageing). This project started in 2010 and finished in 2012.

BRAID aims to develop a comprehensive Research and Technological Development (RTD) roadmap for active ageing by consolidating existing roadmaps and by describing and launching a stakeholder co-ordination and consultation mechanism. The project will characterise key research challenges and produce a vision for a comprehensive approach in supporting the well-being and socio-economic integration of increasing numbers of senior citizens in Europe.
