Platforms for Ageing Community Engagement - Exchange and Enterprise

PLACE-EE is a transnational partnership of public health agencies, local authorities, academics and ICT experts dedicated to improving the quality of life for older people. Funded by the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme of the European Union, our aim is to develop and implement locally derived sustainable solutions to encourage internet use and person-centred e-health. Older people will engage with our transnational partnership of municipal bodies, public health, universities and enterprises in a programme of community engagement and intergenerational exchange between younger and older citizens using an assets-based approach to build capacity among older people to address barriers to service access.
