Multidisciplinary European Programme on Active Ageing

France France France /2010-/2013

France / Finland / Portugal

The Multidisciplinary European Programme on Active Ageing is an Intensive Programme which brings together students and staff from higher education institutions in three participating countries: France (Lille), Portugal (Leiria) and Finland (Joensuu) to:

  • Encourage efficient and multinational teaching of specialist topics which might otherwise not be taught at all, or only in a very restricted number of universities;
  • Enable students and teachers to work together in multinational groups and so benefit from special learning and teaching conditions not available in a single institution, and to gain new perspectives on the topic being studied;
  • Allow members of the teaching staff to exchange views on teaching content and new curricula approaches and to test teaching methods in an international classroom environment.

The specific theme of the MEP project 2011-2013 is to explore how ageing can be dealt with in Europe in the future, from an inter-cultural, pluridisciplinary perspective based on solidarity. Its objective therefore is to assess issues linked with ageing at different levels: economic, social, psychological, cultural, sanitary, and from the point of view of labour, in each of the partner countries.

The idea is to review solutions linked with solidarity, and put forward new ideas and innovative suggestions in order to address those issues.
