Towards a new approach to standards that support active and healthy ageing
to engage with users of all age groups


A new approach to standards can only arise in the frame of a context in which standards for products or services that support Active and Healthy Ageing take account of the real needs and preferences of older people. This involves setting out new, often co-productive, approaches that facilitate the positive engagement of older people in the standardisation process, and promoting standards where such approaches are in evidence. This is the role of the newly established STAndards, Innovation and Research collaboration platform for Active and Healthy Ageing (STAIR-AHA).

Read our factsheet on the STAIR-AHA Platform

The STAIR-AHA brings together standardisers, researchers and innovators as well as policy makers and relevant societal organisations and representatives of older persons to discuss and identify standardisation needs and opportunities for a specific area of concern. The platform is not intended to develop standard-like documents but recommendations for future action.
