Adapting to the demanding healthcare systems and needs of the ageing population in Europe involves the development of innovative solutions and the large-scale implementation of the most successful practices. The market yet remains fragmented as the pathway to growth and internationalisation may be hindered by financing requirements, regulatory constraints and market barriers. How to accelerate the delivery of technological and social innovations for healthy ageing across Europe? Which assessment and standardisation tools to support the scaling-up? How to encourage industry players collaborations and facilitation of appropriate partnerships?
The plenary session aims to explore the key barriers and success factors for scaling-up innovative healthcare solutions. The panel of experts will provide comprehensive strategies to advance innovation quicker for active and healthy ageing at European level.
