European Summit on Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing - 5-8 Dec

SAVE THE DATE – 2nd European Summit on Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing: Transforming the future of health and care in Europe

December 5-8, 2016

European Commission

Brussels, Belgium

This forward-looking event will contribute to defining a shared vision on how innovation can transform demographic change into an opportunity for Europe's ageing society and the Silver Economy.
The objective of the Summit is to look at how digital technology will transform the way we think about delivering health and care in Europe. From health (medical treatment) to prevention and healthy lifestyles (physical activity and sport/wellbeing) and to other areas of the Silver Economy (Silver Tourism, Age Friendly Homes and Living Environments etc.).

The event is not reserved to European organisations, and specific sessions will be dedicated to the global dimension (with guests from Japan, Canada, China and the USA) - and as a follow-up to the G7 declaration on how digital innovation can support the needs of an ageing population.
The expected participation is 1500 – 2000 participants. It will be both a Conference (with a series of workshops) and also an exhibition area (where EC-funded technology solutions developed for digital health and connected care will be showcased). The event is free of charge.
