  2. An ICT-based tool for SMEs to measure and diagnose the workforce characteristics and current/future management strategies to deal with age and multi-generational aspects;
  3. Training resources for both employers and employees to support the implementation of an effective age-friendly and multi- and inter-generational policies and practices
  4. A set of on the job activities promoting multi-generational teamwork and knowledge retention and transference;
