This conference is the annual event of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA). The main aim of this year's event is to show evidence and opportunities on two key issues, namely, how the current commitments and targets of EIP-AHA can contribute to social and economic growth and jobs, and, how to scale up innovation within the care systems in response to the demographic challenge.

A major input to this high level debate will be the evidence collected from the Reference Sites and the first outcomes of the EIP-AHA where six large scale actions have been launched last year in November.

500+ participants are expected who will include national and regional authorities, health and social care professionals, industry, insurers and NGOs. The conference is by invitation only. Please state your interest to EC-EIP-AHA@ec.europa.eu.
