Do you agree that Active and Healthy Ageing is one of the main challenges shared by all EU countries? Do you think EU funds must support effectively the development of all the potential of ICT in health and improving the quality of life of older people? We do too!
We will see examples of how we currently tackle this issue in our regions, with concrete policy and projects examples, and we will discuss some lessons learned implementing innovation for active and healthy ageing, analyzing the role of EU funds and platforms such as EIT Health and the EIP AHA.
