One year after the delivery of the Strategic Implementation Plan, the six Action Groups of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing are ready to present their action plans to a wider audience. These plans aim to bring the benefits of innovation in the field of active and healthy ageing to Europe's citizens.
The 1st Conference of Partners of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing will be held on 6 November in Brussels, hosted by Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission.
The Conference is an opportunity for stakeholders who are already part of an Action Group to meet with different group members, collaborate and discover common interests. Stakeholders interested and involved in different areas of active and healthy ageing will also take part in the conference and contribute to the discussion on how to get the most out of the action plans.
Two panel discussions will be dedicated to the action plans in the areas of prevention, integrated care, and active ageing and independent living. Candidate Reference Sites from different regions will be running a session highlighting the important role of regions in the Partnership by presenting some concrete examples of their work.
The European Commission will also provide information on horizontal issues such as regulatory framework conditions and funding opportunities and explain the next steps for the Partnership. An exhibition, open to all throughout the conference, will display real life examples of innovation in this field.
