The European Research Area in Ageing 2 (ERA-AGE 2) was a three year project funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme.

ERA-AGE 2 ended on 30 September 2012, after three and a half years contining the work of the highly successful ERA-AGE, which started in 2004.  During the life of the project three joint calls were launched, funding 33 post-doctoral research fellowships and, six research projects funded by Europe's first joint research programme on ageing.
