Demographic change in European Regions

Declining, Ageing and Regional Transformation (DART) are challenges for many regions across Europe. For this reason 13 regions – all affected by declining and ageing – did co-operate to benchmark, identify and transfer appropriate solutions for dealing with demographic change.

DART defined new common indicators for measuring decline and other symptoms of demographic change in European regions. These indicators allowed a comparison of data to be made between different regions.

DART identified good practices which strengthen the economy and which concern educational as well as health care and social services in each region. The best of these practices were transferred to other regions.

DART made political recommendations to regional and European stakeholders and raise public and political awareness with regard to declining and ageing regions.

The project ended in 2012.

DART Final Conference took place on 3rd September 2012 in Potsdam, Germany.
