London, UK (PRWEB) April 11, 2010
As the newly launched BRAID project begins its work to develop a comprehensive roadmap for active ageing and RTD, it has just issued an open call for experts to participate in shaping the dialogue around these essential policy issues. BRAID, Bridging Research in Ageing and ICT Development, is an EU FP7 Support Action that was launched in March by 9 partners from 7 countries, and is expected to publish a consolidated roadmap that builds upon the work of earlier roadmapping projects, and an intensive stakeholder engagement process.
This Call for Experts has been launched in order to ensure a robust and critical stakeholder dialogue. Experts in the stakeholder groups, including ICT service providers and technology suppliers, policy makers, standardization organisations, health and care service organisations, caregivers, and elderly end-users of ICT, are invited to submit an application for consideration to Holly Ashton (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applicants should include name, organisation, country of residence, contact email address, and a description of their interest in the work of the BRAID project.
Selected experts will be asked to provide commentary on documents to be published by the BRAID project, provide expert advice on optimization of stakeholder coordination, and to attend project workshops to explore the key issues and themes related to ICT and ageing. The Call for Experts will be open until Friday, 14 May 2010. For more information about the BRAID project, and additional detail about the Call for Experts, please visit the Global Security Intelligence website at: http://globalseci.com/?page_id=763
