About The European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing
The European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing aims to become THE European networking & exchange platform for providing innovation support and inter-disciplinary cooperation for active & healthy ageing. It brings together collaboration partners from around Europe (from industry and academia to care providers and the older people themselves), who have a stake in promoting & supporting healthy ageing to innovate new service models, such as in health & care, lifelong learning and employment.
Its second edition will take place between 18 and 21 October 2021, online, consisting of interactive workshops, discussions, plenary sessions, exhibitions and match-making activities. The event will build on 10 years of legacy of the AAL Association’s AAL Forum, sharing knowledge and showcasing innovation at all levels in the active and healthy ageing sector.
This year, the event is promoted and sponsored by the AAL Programme, and it is organized in conjunction with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, Region member of the AAL Association. To make the event a truly international place for learning, networking and sharing the AAL Association has invited some of the key actors of ageing healthy and well in Europe and at the global level, such as the Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL) and the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region. More partners to be announced !
