Creating synergies with EIP AHA- 4th Conference of partners

BeyondSilos participated in the 4th Conference of Partners on European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) on 9-10 December 2015 in Brussels.

This year‘s conference theme was "Accelerating market uptake of innovation for active and healthy ageing across Europe ". The EIP on AHA has reached the decisive moment where drawing a line and carefully considering achievements will determine the accelerated path towards its 2020 goals. The Scaling-Up Strategy, together with the Monitoring and Assessment Framework (MAFEIP) and the Support Action (PROEIPAHA) were at the centre of the talks. 

EIP AHA Action groups presented their status and future strategic priorities, highlighting that 73% of the commitments of Action Groups have been achieved or are in good progress.

EU Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Günther Oettinger, expressed strong support by giving a key note speech that is available here:
