The Summit on Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing aims to engage Europe’s policy, services and market leaders to co-create a shared vision on how Europe can address the challenges and seize the opportunities arising from demographic change through ICT and innovation and in that way contribute to economic recovery. Central topic: how can technology, innovation and new ways of cooperation help Europe to turn this major challenge into an opportunity?
 
Live demonstrations, sand pits and an interactive exhibition will show in action what is being discussed and highlighted in thematic debates and knowledge-sharing sessions. A wide variety of meetings and side-events with one goal: to turn the opportunities of demographic ageing in growth and jobs for Europe.
 
Several European Commissioners, national ministers, regional authorities and leaders from industry, including SMEs and startups, as well as civil society will take the floor and lead the debates. Leaders and front runners from industry and government, politics and finance, medical and pharmaceutical sectors, social and health care, civil society and consumers will come together to share insights and innovations that meet the needs of Europe’s ageing population.
