What are the needs of women immigrants coming from countries outside the EU? What are the obstacles that hinder their integration? The FEMAGE (Needs for Female Immigrants and their Integration in Ageing Societies) project looked at ways of addressing some of the challenges affecting Europe's social cohesion and demographic future.

FEMAGE also produced a number of key recommendations on support policies and services for these women's integration into an ageing population, such as early assistance to prevent lasting deskilling.
