INNOVAGE Stakeholder Forum 2
The Second European Forum on Social Innovations for Healthy and Active Life Expectancy took place in Riga, Latvia on Thursday 25 September 2014.
The INNOVAGE project is dedicated to developing and testing, as well as surveying and cataloguing social innovations, which will have a solid impact on improving the quality of life and wellbeing of older people.
Chaired by Prof Vappu Taipale, this was the second Forum in a series of three. Held approximately halfway through INNOVAGE this event allowed stakeholders to examine the progress and outputs from the project so far. Participants were also asked to provide expert advice on the maximisation of wellbeing in old age and Healthy Life Expectancy within INNOVAGE’s activities.
Attendees covered a range of backgrounds including policy makers, practitioners, older people and their representatives, companies and NGOs with experience or interest in social innovations for ageing.
