Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for all enquiries regarding this list*** The KT-EQUAL programme has been established to take forward into implementation the combined achievements of EQUAL and SPARC to influence decisions in design, planning and policy in all areas relating to the ageing population in the early 21st century. With the increasing proportion of older people in the population, there is growing urgency for evidence and knowledge to inform decisions and solutions to enable older #people, for example, to maintain their independence, to continue to be active in the workplace for as long as they choose and to benefit from emerging technologies. Meeting these and other challenges will be the focus of the proposed KT EQUAL consortium which brings together experts in engineering, construction, architecture, participatory and inclusive design, rehabilitation, psychology, change management and public engagement to work collaboratively with each other and with older people to promote knowledge transfer in innovative and effective ways.
