EIP on Active and Healthy Ageing

Jointly organised by DG Health & Consumers (SANCO) and DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology (CONNECT), European Commission

Are we being ambitious enough? Deliverables under the EIP on Active and Healthy Ageing

The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) is now in its implementation phase. Crucial in the implementation of the Strategic Implementation Phase (SIP) is the agreement of Action Plans on a first set of specific actions that are to be launched in 2012.

The objective of this workshop is to use the 2012 Gastein Forum as an opportunity to anticipate the discussions that will occur during the first EIP 'Conference of Partners' in November (milestone for the EIP on AHA to test and discuss) on the Action Plans and to build momentum with a broad range of stakeholders. A number of projects committed to run a number of activities contributing towards the target deliverable of the specific action will be showcased.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss with members of the Action Groups and help shape the development of the EIP on AHA.
