PROEIPAHA : Support activities in favor of the European Innovation Partnership for Active and Healthy Ageing

Outsight is key member of the winning consortium PROEIPAHA which has been awarded with a 2 millon Euro grant in the framework of the H2020 call HCO 1 – 2014 by European Commission.

The goal of PROEIPAHA project is to help addressing the challenges identified by the EIP AHA stakeholders and experts, by providing a wide range of high quality support services for the EIP AHA, from secretariat services, R&I facilitation, policy guidance, awareness and stakeholder’s engagement support, fostering open and sustainable collaboration. In order to pursue this goal, the project adopts a two-tier approach: internally, to reinforce the activity, output and impact of the EIP AHA, and externally, to increase its influence as a “policy catalyser” in the wider European economy. In other words, the project aims at improving the internal collaboration of the EIP AHA, and to widen its external outreach and influence.
