First STAIR-AHA Platform meeting

A new approach to standards for ageing well engaging end-users

First meeting of the newly established STAIR-AHA Platform

31 October 2018 from 10:00 to 16:00
DIN Headquarters, Berlin, Germany


The STAndards, Innovation and Research for Active and Healthy Ageing (STAIR-AHA) platform is holding its very first meeting in Berlin, Germany this late October! Make sure you don't miss this opportunity to discuss how standards can help ensure digital goods and services can help cope with the challenges of Europe's ageing population.

All relevant stakeholders welcome! An interactive event will enable participants to share information about their projects, challenges and concerns in relation to standards that may support active and healthy ageing (AHA). The event will aim at identifying possible collaborations and ways forward in standardisation.

You have a key role in an organisation working in the Silver Economy? You are a researcher exploring the implications of digitalisation for our ageing populations? You are an older person's representative interested in technological or standardisation issues?
Save your seat now! 

Feel free to forward the information to any relevant stakeholder who might be willing to contribute to the dialogue on this subject.
