FORAGE for later life learning: building on European experience

ForAge was an EU-funded project from January 2012 to 31 March 2015. Its main goals have been:
• To develop a European multi-lateral network concerned with learning in later life
• To be an archive and access point for information
• To promote informed discussion between practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and older people
• To promote the development of learning in later-life, the exchange of good practice and the raising of standards throughout Europe.

The EU funding for ForAge ceased at the end of March 2015. However, the work goes on. From April 2015, in co-operation with others, the Association for Education and Ageing is taking responsibility for the ForAge website and for the continuing development of the associated database.
