"Greater alignment between European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) and on EIP Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA) operational plans and actions offer the opportunity to aim at common social, environmental and economic impacts in a more integrated fashion while addressing a rich ‘society for all ages’ approach.
At the urban level, the convergence of broad smart city, health city, age-friendly city, and green city initiatives are pointing towards new ways of working, planning, implementing and evaluating progress and impacts that can span traditional silos. As we prepare for the next stage of the EIPs out to 2020, and attract new partners and commitments, it might be worthwhile to consider a cross-EIP action group spanning SCC and AHA to identify and galvanise cooperation and support actions for partners.
Having this in mind, Age-Friendly Netherland/AFEdemy, NetwellCASALA and Cáritas Coimbra draw up an article last year that intended to launch the starting point for a crossover between group D4 of the EIP-AHA – Age-Friendly Environments and the EIP on Smart Cities and Communities, titled Smart Age-friendly Cities | Age-friendly Smart Cities!

This workshop is organised as a side event of the Conference of Partners of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Health Ageing taking place on 27 and 28 February 2018.
