INESC TEC-coordinated project using virtual reality to promote physical exercise and socialisation among the older population comes to an end

The number of people over 65 is expected to double by 2050, according to the United Nations (UN), which has launched several calls for greater support for older population. Data from the European Commission also show that, since 2012, deaths exceed births in the European Union. Active and healthy ageing has been a key topic within European policies, with significant allocation of funding to support research projects in this domain. Coordinated by INESC TEC, the VR2Care project - which has now come to an end - received €2.2M funding. One of the results of the project includes the use of virtual reality to promote physical exercise and encourage socialisation among the older population.
