On 9th and 10th December, Brussels will host the Annual Conference of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA), which will be devoted to “Accelerating market uptake of innovation for active and healthy ageing across Europe”.

conferencia-socios-eip-aha-kronikgune-osakidetzaThe EIP-AHA (“European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing“) is now at a crucial stage of its development and the forthcoming months will determine the success of the efforts made to date. The aim of the Conference of Partners is to generate an open discussion on the achievements so far and to analyse the future vision for the Partnership, in which innovation and the delivery of tangible results are extremely important.

At a European level, the aim is the large-scale deployment of innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing. To do so, the European Commission has implemented a series of initiatives related to the extension of the EIP-AHA strategy; and the conference will help to discuss and analyse how to maximise the impact of some large scale opportunities. The conference will also serve to recognise the work of different organisations from European regions in relation to the implementation of innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing.

In this aspect, Osakidetza and Kronikgune have been invited by the organisers to present the European U4H project on 10th December within the “Working together in partnership to maximise and measure impact” workshop. This project has enabled the innovative tele-medicine solutions to be deployed in the Basque Country within the integrated treatment of patients with heart failure. The aim of the deployment is to improve the ongoing treatment of such patients through monitoring in their homes.
