Innovative ideas welcomed: Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing Published on: 20/04/2012, Last update: 04/07/2014
The pilot European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing aims to increase the average healthy lifespan in the EU by 2 years by 2020.
It pursues a triple win for Europe:
- Improving the health and quality of life of Europeans with a focus on older people;
- Supporting the long-term sustainability and efficiency of health and social care systems;
- Enhancing the competitiveness of EU industry through business and expansion in new markets.
Why focus on ageing?
Active and healthy ageing is a societal challenge shared by all European countries. It is an opportunity for Europe to establish itself as a global leader that is capable of providing innovative responses.
