Community for an age-friendly society


The Final Conference of the ENGAGED Thematic Network for Active & Healthy Ageing (AHA) was held on June 3, 2015 in Eindhoven. This conference is part of ‘Think Dementia’, the final event of the Interreg IV-B project INNOVATE Dementia. The ENGAGED and the Interreg IV-B project e-Ucare have jointly organised the track “Market Implementation” within this international event, in cooperation with Brabant, region of Smart Health.

This roadmap has been designed in the ENGAGED Thematic Network in order to achieveUser Empowerment. User involvement is one of the major barriers for the introduction ofinnovative solutions for active and healthy ageing (AHA). Therefore this roadmap aims toinvolve (and to keep involved) in a relatively short period of time a sufficient number of usersto reach a critical mass so that it can affect the political decisions affecting the Europeanmarket for active and healthy ageing.

This roadmap aims at providing valuable information on the status and key elements ofnetwork sustainability and, ultimately, concrete actions to be carried out to reinforce andensure the sustainability of the network. Alignment with the EIP AHA will be considered as acrosscutting issue in the contribution of this roadmap. The roadmap provides a list ofrecommendations and activities framed along a timeline, which comprises milestones anddevelopment periods.

This roadmap aims to develop and implement of a European monitoring framework for impactassessment of independent living solutions in testing grounds/ reference sites for wide scaledeployment across Europe. A European monitoring framework for impact assessment couldhelp to implement and scale up innovative solutions in a region or country. If this isdeveloped and used in a joined collaboration with regions across Europe it is possible to reachscale on the evidence, to compare the outcomes of similar solutions/ interventions and tocommunicate about the evidence on a bigger scale.

This document describes the rationale behind and the process up to a roadmap for designingand suggesting new business models with the purpose to give all (current and new)stakeholders in the healthcare and care industry a better way to meet future demands. Thechange process is spurred and enabled by an increasing digital dimension of the work carriedout in healthcare and social care. This document also provides a high-level view on theactivities and milestones that form the basis for the roadmap itself and will be used as a partof a combined roadmap.
