This workshop is aimed at discussing advances in developing AI solutions to support workability and wellbeing of ageing workers. The workshop is organised by the CO-ADAPT project in collaboration with other projects co-funded through the same Horizon 2020 call (SmartWork, Bionic, Ageing@Work, Sustage, Steffar). The workshop aims at exchanging experiences, identifying collaboration opportunities in particular for future research and development.
