Interreg Europe

The EU_SHAFE project, an initiative co-funded by the Interreg Europe Programme, officially launched its activities in Aarhus, Denmark on the 23rd of September 2019 during the AAL Forum

All the 10 partners, coming from 7 different EU countries, had the opportunity to define together the mission and operational plan of the EU_SHAFE project.

The kick-off meeting was organised to officially launch the the project and streamline the initial action plan. 

The project consortium, composed by a well balanced group of actors leaders in the field of demographic change and age-friendly environments, including five foremost regional organisations committed to investing in innovation for active and healthy ageing awarded with the EIP on AHA Reference Site status, worked together to highlight the project goals, present their roles, responsibilities and plans towards the goals’ accomplishment.

It has been a fruitful day in which the partners, guided by the project Coordinator (the Provincial Council of Bizkaia) had the opportunity to particularly focus on how to better align with and influence the regional policy instruments addressed by the action working in close collaboration with key stakeholders involved at local level in the Smart Healthy and Age-Friendly Environment (SHAFE) field.

During the meeting, deep attention was dedicated to the planning of the first twelve months of activities, spotting light on the identification of key processes enabling regions to understand how to effectivly uptake good practices close-matching with their needs to improve multilevel policy instruments aimed at making cities and communities age-friendly.
