The main goal of the EU project "Goldenworkers" was to identify emerging technologies and socio-economic trends, new models of extending professional active life and novel application scenarios in the area of ICT for active ageing at work, leading to the definition of a beyond of the state-of-the-art research agenda, fully embraced by research and practice community.
Co-financed by the European 7th Framework Programme, GOLDENWORKERS aimed to build a roadmap for ICT adoption in the field of active ageing at work; the project had three main objectives:
- Towards the research community: To define research directions in the field of ICT for active ageing at work
- Towards companies and public services organizations: To define an action plan going forward to adapt companies and society to the new demographic, economic and social reality
- Towards policy makers: To provide recommendations on policy and public service design to integrate ageing workers into society through the innovative use of ICT
