Summary of key aims

AQUA-Age suitable training is a research and development project on new forms of self-directed learning and learning near the workplace for older (and younger) employees. The project aims at demonstrating how organisations can include older employees into further education and profit from their experiences to enhance their employability up to the age of 67.
But AQUA is not only geared to older employees, it also raises awareness of companies towards an inclusive personnel management.
