Working Groups

Sheld-on working groups description

Each partner involved in this initiative participates in the activities related to at least one Working Group from WG1, WG2 and/or WG3 according to their background, expertise and interests. Participants in each Working Group involving entities with different expertise, forming multidisciplinary groups of experts. These Working Groups are designed to remove the traditional barriers to integrated and systemic solutions addressed by this Action that target the industry as a whole. Obtained outputs from these WGs will feed WG4, a transdisciplinary Working Group leading to new concepts for ageing well.

All Working Groups will run during the four years of this COST Action. Results needed for WG4 will be prepared by WG1, WG2, and WG3 and delivered at the end of the first year. During years 2nd, 3rd and 4th, WG1, WG2 and WG3 will continue their activities updating the state of the art and making progress beyond the networking.
