The Partnership was announced in the EU's 'Innovation Union" flagship initiative, which is part of the Europe 2020 strategy.
The aim of the pilot partnership on active and healthy ageing is, by 2020, to enable citizens to live longer actively, independently and in good health by increasing the average number of healthy life years by two.
The partnership builds on coherent and integrated, stakeholder-led, citizen-centred and innovation–driven actions. The event is the first opportunity for stakeholder representatives to discuss their ideas and concrete actions for the partnership.
