The European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing aims to be the European networking and exchange platform for providing innovation support and inter-disciplinary cooperation for active and healthy ageing. It brings together collaboration partners from around Europe (from industry and academia to care providers and the older people themselves), who are engaged in promoting and supporting healthy ageing to innovate new service models, such as in health and care, lifelong learning, and employment.
It will be a third edition of The European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing and will take place 18 – 20 October 2022 in Gdansk, Poland. The event will build on 10 years of legacy of the AAL Association’s AAL Forum, sharing knowledge and showcasing innovation at all levels in the active and healthy ageing sector.
Presenting at this event is a brilliant way of informing other delegates and stakeholders about how you are helping to change the way older people use technology to stay healthy and independent for longer. It is an excellent way to make your mark at the forum whilst fully immersing yourself in the rest of the event’s workshops, plenary sessions and networking opportunities.
