The 2016 Innovation Summit is designed to harness the transformative potential of the Digital Single Market across different sectors of our society and economy, develop joint actions and ultimately maximise the benefits of digital innovation for Europe's ageing society.
The event intends to mobilise the relevant stakeholders around a common vision for scaling up innovation in Health and Active Ageing, the agenda for jobs and growth, strengthening the co-creation across national and regional authorities, civil society, and industry on creating scalable market opportunities within Europe and Globally. In particular high growth-potential areas such as ICT supported independent living and age-friendly smart homes, social robotics, digitally supported integrated health and social care services will be targeted.
It will build on the achievements on the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy ageing (EIP AHA), past and current research & innovation in Horizon 2020, the Active and Assisted Living Joint Programme with Member States and the EIT-KIC on healthy living and active ageing.
AGE Platform Europe is a partner of the Summit.
