The 1st Conference will be held in Brussels. 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).
