The membership of ERA-AGE is based upon two categories: partners, which are those public authorities who fund, manage and implement coherent, strategically planned national research programmes on ageing, and associate members who are public authorities who manage and fund research on ageing. All of the members of the network are committed to carrying out the five main objectives of the ERA-AGE and to the ultimate aim of a European Research Area in this field.
Initially the ERA-AGE project consisted of nine partners and five associate members. In January 2005 the project was successful in gaining extended funding from Framework Programme Six ERA-NET to bring on board three new partners - Germany, Israel and Italy.
From 2009 ERA-AGE 2 had 13 full partners in twelve countries and has been adding associate partners during the life of the project. Please view their profiles below.
All of the partner and associate organisations in the ERA-AGE network are key players in research management and funding in their respective country or region and they have a history of European and international cooperation. They bring their unique expertise and specific research fields to the network. They also have specific clusters of expertise which collectively constitutes a broad representation of all aspects of ageing research.
Our Associate Partners work closely with the ERA-AGE 2 consortium to support our activities and aims and participate in the consortium's activities. We are actively seeking to expand the number of our Associate Partners, and will update this page as the numbers increase.
