The innovative aspect of the LifeAge Project is based on the answer to a real need, supported by scientific studies and European level statistics and research, by providing a friendly-user tool to elderly people 55+ not only in the consortium partner countries but in the rest of the EU, by means of using ICT devices (as smartphones and tablets) to support physical activity in their lives as an important part of the daily routine leading to a new, healthy, lifestyle.
The LifeAge Project is composed by 3 phases involving 9 intellectual outputs. This project aims to encourage participation in sport and physical activity, especially by supporting the implementation of the Council Recommendation on health-enhancing physical activity and being in line with the EU Physical Activity Guidelines.
