The IN-4-AHA consortium wants to support the uptake of innovation for active and healthy ageing across Europe. Some of the challenges most faced by service providers are related to creating and proving the impact on users´ wellbeing. How can funders and other stakeholders get evidence on the benefits that the service generates? How to make better use of data and share data in the eco-system of health and care?

We invite you to take part if you
• have developed an innovative solution that is used by persons 65+
• the service is provided for the European market (in any EU country)
• The service generates data that can be shared and re-used with other stakeholders

The focus group participants will be actively taking part in moderated discussions on the topics. The results of the focus group discussion will be used to improve impact evaluation framework for services to support active and healthy ageing. The meeting will take place on 17 June via Zoom. The link will be sent to registered participants.

Date: June 17
Time: 10:00-13:00 (CET)
