Short description (intelligible to all):


The PASEO project intends to improve the implementation of programs for the promotion of physical activity among sedentary older people by helping build new policy capacities. PASEO will set up national alliances and employ a process of co-operative planning to build both inter-organisational (e.g. structures linking organisations) and intra-organisational capacities (e.g. personnel, resources). The project builds on the EU-sponsored EUNAAPA project (2006–2008). 15 European nations take part in PASEO, which is co-ordinated by Prof. Rütten. Funding (800,000€) is provided by the European Commission (DG SANCO).
