Target audience: This session is intended for Partners from the EIP on AHA Action Groups and
Reference sites working on housing. Organisations in attendance will be from regions & local
authorities, industry players, ICT sector, construction sector, housing organisations, SMEs,
research centres, and civil society.
Within the European Innovation Partnership on Active & Healthy Ageing, housing is tackled
across different perspectives. The challenge today is that there is a shortage of suitable building
stock that is adapted and in an age-friendly context to support independent living of the growing
ageing population. Indeed Europe itself represents a huge market to equip individual apartments,
collective residences and social housing, which will allow older people not only a better access
to services but also potentially stimulate growth and job creation in key sectors such as
construction, ICT and services around housing. Adapting housing is a first step in a ‘prevention
approach’ that ensures the health and wellbeing of older people in their own home.
The session will tackle three questions in a structured conversation with panellists and
participants interventions:
1. What does an age-friendly home look like?
2. What are the Policies, funding programmes & strategies around age-friendly housing at
regional level, at national level, at European level?
3. What are the Future Actions?
Expected outcomes
Identified areas of added value for European Commission action to promote age-friendly housing
Input into the Silver Economy Agenda
Ideas on innovative financing options to support age-friendly housing programmes
Ideas on ways forward on Certification/Labels/Voluntary agreements
Next steps
