The Summit on Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing (9 and 10 March 2015) aims to engage Europe’s policy, services and market leaders to co-create a shared vision on how Europe can address the challenges and seize the opportunities arising from demographic change through ICT and innovation and in that way contribute to economic recovery.
Central topic: how can technology, innovation and new ways of cooperation help Europe to turn this major challenge into an opportunity?
The EU population is changing dramatically because of a higher life expectancy and a lower fertility: longer lives and fewer newborns. The number of European citizens over 80 will double by 2025 while the labour market is shrinking. Demographic change constitutes a colossal societal challenge and affects everyone.
But demographic change also offers new opportunities for innovation, growth and societal transformation that can benefit many millions.A Digital Single Market can support a fairer, more sustainable and prosperous society and the opportunities offered by the Silver Economy are immense.
