About the i2i-Project
 
In September 2005, the i2i-Project was launched in the framework of the Second Transnational Exchange Programme of the European Commission, 2005 - 2007 (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities).

The i2i-project was realised in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Lithuania and the UK. In each country a government and an external consultancy organisation cooperated at regional level. By combining political impetus, expert know-how and direct links into practice we intended to increase the chances for a successful implementation of socio-political measures in favour of isolated old persons.

The project work focused on the identification and improvement of measures that enable groups at a multi-dimensional risk of social exclusion to fully participate in community life. A major focus was on strengthening initiatives by older persons for older persons and on supporting networks of these initiatives.
