Carina Dantas participated as speaker in the event Innovation in AHA: Looking into the future! on the 26th February 2021, within the session “How EIP on AHA has evolved: lessons learnt and next steps”.
Demographic change is one of the key challenges Europe is facing and will continue to face in the next decades, and it is essential to implement better policies, programmes, and practices to allow innovation in this field to reach the end-user. Over the next two years, the IN-4-AHA consortium wants to support the supply and demand sides in implementing scaling up strategies for innovative solutions.
In this workshop stakeholders learnt more about the IN-4-AHA project and discusses the strategic priorities going forward, also reflecting on past successes and lessons learnt from previous projects in this area.
Carina Dantas presented some of the main outcomes of the group D4 of the EIP, such as the SHAFE Network, NET4Age-Friendly, the EU Covenant on Demographic Change and Homes4life.
