Active and Healthy Ageing

Thursday, 02.10.2014 | 18:00 - 19:00

Co-funded by the Health Programme of the European Union and organised by the DG Health and Consumers, European Commission

The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA), which brings together more than 3000 key stakeholders, has developed a collection of good practices of what needs to be done for ageing people to stay active, independent and healthy for as long as possible. Many partners have already scaled up some of their good practices both within their country and in tandem with other member states' local/regional authorities.

This session will be structured around the presentation of successful scaling up stories from selected partners followed by a presentation on the important role regions can play in the scaling up process.


This workshop is part of the 17th European Health Forum Gastein conference which has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme (2008-2013).
