How does the partnership work?
Through cooperation between the European Commission and EU countries, regions, industry, health and social care professionals and organisations representing older people and patients.
This collaborative partnership aims to improve older peoples' lives, helping them to contribute to society, and reduce pressure on health and care systems - ultimately contributing to sustainable growth.
Priority areas for action have been identified in the 2011 Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) and Operational Plan (OP) adopted by the steering group responsible for launching and implementing the partnership.
In February 2012, the Commission adopted a Communication(85 KB) on the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing in support of the SIP. Stakeholders have started to work together in Action Groups to make this plan a reality.
