Smart Age-friendly Cities | Age-friendly Smart Cities!


"Greater alignment between EIP-SCC an EIP-AHA operational plans and actions offer the opportunity to aim at common social, environmental and economic impacts in a more integrated fashion while addressing a rich ‘society for all ages’ approach. At the urban level, the convergence of broad smart city, health city, age-friendly city, and green city initiatives are pointing towards new ways of working, planning, implementing and evaluating progress and impacts that can span traditional silos. As we prepare for the next stage of the EIPs out to 2020, and attract new partners and commitments, it might be worthwhile to consider a cross-EIP action group spanning SCC and AHA to identify and galvanise cooperation and support actions for partners.
