Progress Towards Healthy Ageing in Europe is a two year project funded by the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity (PROGRESS).

It supports the implementation of the objectives of the European Union in the employment, social affairs and equal opportunites area and contribute to the achievement of the Europe 2020 strategy goals.   

The project will focus on the 45-68 age range, including both those in employment and people not in employment due to disability, long term health conditions or early retirement. The predominant population will be those currently in employment and who are likely to remain in employment for longer as a result of rising retirement ages across Europe. The project will seek to develop innovative approaches to improving the health and lifestyle choices of this target group through interventions delivered in their workplace.
