What is WE4AHA?

WE4AHA is a Coordination and Suppor Action that provides support to the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA).

Digital innovation has the potential to ensure that members of the ageing population remain independent, active and live longer in their homes and communities, at the same time as the efficiency of health and social care systems is increased and new sectors of the economy are enhanced. Innovative digital health solutions can support healthier lifestyles and empower citizens to manage their own health conditions, yet still meet the expectations of patients and carers.

Objectives

1. To provide centralised, integrated and continued support to administration, external communication and coordination of the stakeholder groups and partners engaged in the development and implementation of the three addressed horizontal activities: I2M, Blueprint and MAFEIP.

2. To promote an effective and increased large-scale uptake of digital solutions for Active and Healthy Ageing.

3. To foster the policy vision, the unexploited potential and the increasing market opportunities of digital innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing, through the identification of synergies with AHA related European initiatives such as the Active Assisted Living (AAL) Programme and the Joint Programming Initiative on More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL).
