1st Conference of Partners of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing
6 November 2012, Brussels
The 1st Conference of Partners of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing will be held in Brussels on 6th November 2012. Representatives from European Member States and Regions will be there to support the initiative and illustrate how they will contribute to the Partnership.
At the conference the six Action Groups (stakeholders' coalitions) will present their Action Plans on prevention, integrated care, and active ageing and independent living. The audience can discuss with their representatives what good their action plans will bring to Europe's citizens. What innovation in active and healthy ageing will they deliver and to whom? What will they do to achieve a successful approach for medication adherence, to distribute validated programs for fall prevention and malnutrition, to deploy integrated care models, to achieve standardised independent living solutions, and a network of age friendly environments? The conference marks the moment – after over a year of preparing, committing and planning – where the actual implementation phase of the Innovation Platform actually takes off.
The Conference is an opportunity for networking and cooperation across and between the Action Groups and other stakeholders. Also interested partners who do not yet participate are most welcome. An exhibition, open to all throughout the conference, will display real life examples of the kind of innovation the Innovation Partnership strives for.
Participation to the event is by invitation only, but all can join in the discussions via twitter @EIP_AHA and the hashtag #eipaha12. Of course the event will be streamed (see conference web site).
Should you wish to be invited, please send us your full contact details and reason for participating to EC-EIP-AHA@ec.europa.eu and we will consider your application.

For the first time, a wide consortium of 47 partners in 11 countries has dedicated four intensive years of research and development to the improvement of bus systems (under the coordination of UITP). The innovative solutions developed and tested as part of the project 'European Bus System of the Future' can be considered essential ingredients for an intelligent bus system, with pioneering vehicles and infrastructures that are well-integrated in European urban scenarios.
