Invitation for Commitment and Action Plans
The second Invitation for Commitment to the Action Plans of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing closed on 28 February 2013.
Around 320 commitments have been submitted. The organisations behind the initiatives cover all Member States of the EU and reach beyond. Some of these submissions were put forward by new coalitions; others are expanding already existing commitments and already existing networks.
The 2nd Conference of Partners, held on 25 November 2013 in Brussels, was the opportunity for Action Groups to present their first achievements and impact ( 731 KB) (a year after the adoption of their action plans), as well as delivery targets for 2014/2015.
The initial Invitation for Commitment was launched upon the adoption of the Commission Communication on the EIP's Strategic Implementation Plan (29th February 2012) and closed on 3 June May 2012.
Further to the invitation for Commitment, six Action Groups were formed, made up of universities and research groups, public authorities, health providers, industry, non-governmental organizations representing citizens, older people and patients, and others.
The groups presented their Action Plans at the
Conference of Partners of 6 November, with implementation
starting immediately. Read the Commission's
memo published at this occasion.
