Room for older workers (55+) in the modern labour market

In a modern, fast-paced work world full of innovation and technological advancements, older workers are often left behind – and with them their valuable expertise and workforce. The IntegrAGE project counteracts this and aims to integrate people over the age of 55 into the labour market, strengthen their resilience and use their experience – so that everyone, young or old, has and can keep a job.
