DSC –DEPARTAMENTO DE SAÚDE COLETIVA/UnB is part of the Faculty of Health of the University of Brasilia. It is a public institution of teaching, research, dissemination of scientific knowledge in the area of collective and public health through its graduation course and post-graduation courses at the level of master and doctorate in that area. Its involvement with SiforAGE is through the laboratory of intergenerational relationships for health promotion of elders and young people (INTERAGE) which develops research and activities as a means of social innovation and active ageing.
What are our goals within SIforAGE?
Although we participate in many Work Packages (WP) of the project, our activity is mainly focused on WP1 and WP9. The objective of WP1 is to promote a social innovation incubator, which will give a framework to the different type of stakeholders working in the field of active and healthy ageing, which will enable to increase the coordination of stakeholders for a more active participation of society in research and to promote social innovation and responsibility.
WP9 is dedicated to communicating with a wider audience about the project, the issues it addresses and its results. Through ongoing targeted dissemination activities the consortium will raise awareness, inform and engage two core target groups working on active and healthy ageing, namely policy makers and academia, whilst also reaching out to other stakeholders (private sector, civil society, the general public). Specifically, our goals in WP9 are:
- To inform and raise awareness about SIforAGE, the issues it addresses, its relevance and results.
- To promote active participation, engagement and dialogue among stakeholders including actors from regional and local government, researchers, private sector and civil society organisations in the EU27 and international level.
- To contribute to scientific debate and future research activities on active and healthy ageing.
- To provide to the policy makers and stakeholders some policy recommendations on how to that help in the definition of policies addressed to improve the cohesion and cooperation between EU.
