PROGRESSIVE, also known under the full title: ‘Progressive Standards around ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) for Active and Healthy Ageing’, is a European research project implemented by a consortium of ten partners, led by De Montfort University (United Kingdom). It is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) funded by the European Commission. A summary details of this CSA can be found on the Cordis Portal page (external)

The area of ICT and Active and Healthy Ageing is vast, so the project focuses on 8 ‘fields’ that range from community safety to care homes. Within these fields, specific attention is being given to the way that standards help in the development of ‘age-friendly’ communities and facilities, and ‘smart homes’.
