European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA)

dianagosalvez Diana Gosálvez Prados — 6/11/2012


With the Innovation Union strategy the European Commission aims to enhance European competitiveness and tackle societal challenges through research and innovation. One way in which this is to be achieved is with Innovation Partnerships.


Their unique strength is that they will address weaknesses in the European research and innovation system (notably, under-investment, conditions which are not sufficiently innovation-friendly, and fragmentation and duplication), which considerably complicate the discovery or exploitation of knowledge and, in many cases, ultimately prevent the entry of innovations into the market place. The European Commission has identified active and healthy ageing as a major societal challenge common to all European countries, and an area which presents considerable potential for Europe to lead the world in providing innovative responses to this challenge.
