CE-Ageing Strategy

What is the CE-Ageing Strategy for?
The CE-Ageing Strategy serves as joint strategic guideline for the Central European countries and regions in order to manage and adequately respond to the challenges of demographic change.

What are the target groups and targeted regions of the Strategy?
The Strategy is jointly developed with and for CE-countries and regions in order to establish coordinated actions at the transnational, national, the regional and the local level. The target group comprises policy makers and persons responsible for policy actions, SME’s, older persons, NGOs, research, as well as persons in charge of HRD, education, migration, social, labour market and economic policy in the above mentioned territories.

Who is developing the Strategy?
The CE-Ageing Strategy (Action 1, Work Package 3) is a core output of the CE-Ageing Platform, a project co-funded by the CE-Programme.

The development process includes the establishment of an Age-Steering group as decision making body responsible for overall strategy development. The group consults twice a year in 2011-2013 (six meetings with varying chairmanship of CE-countries).

In addition, three workshops were held together with experts of research and applied science as well as content related policy responsible persons at the national levels so that up-to date knowledge and policy actions can be integrated into the Strategy. Results, presentations and reports from each Thematic Workshop are available here:

Additionally, results of the CE-Ageing Platform, the annual CE-Conferences and the Peer Reviews were also included in the CE-Ageing Strategy.

The Age-Steering Group (ASG) establishes recommendations, advises on adapted policy frames and improves programme designs. Existing potentials will be identified and activities taken on the policy level by the actors involved in the project in parallel to the development of the CE-Ageing Strategy.
