Collaborative networks involving a variety of stakeholders, e.g. senior professionals, intermediary entities, and beneficiaries have the potential of inducing more effective integration of seniors in the socio-economic system. Based on an extensive analysis of current and emerging organizational models and the analysis of a future scenario, a number of strategic actions are identified to properly adopt a collaborative networks approach to active ageing. Finally, new directions towards the integration of affective computing approaches in a new generation of collaborative systems are suggested.
