The Conference of Partners was also the occasion to generate an open discussion about the future vision for the Partnership. In that respect, the Reference Sites Collaborative Network has elaborated a proposal  PDF icon 615 KB to inform the next Call for Reference Sites.
The new call for Reference Sites, along with the new call for Commitments, will be launched and implemented in 2016. These Calls will align the Partnership activities with the ambitions to scale up innovation for active and healthy ageing across Europe, and support the economic growth and jobs dimension of the Silver Economy.

To strengthen the Partnership it was also agreed to introduce a Governance Model that will ensure focus on the targets and seek strategic alignment and synergies with other organisation with similar targets or working jointly on horizontal initiatives such as the Monitoring and Assessment Framework (MAFEIP).

A report of the event will be published shortly, meanwhile presentations done at the event are available from the agenda page.
