The next Conference of Partners will take place on 27-28 February in Brussels. EC is planning for this to be a working 2-day meeting, open to EIP on AHA partners and dedicated to reviewing the action plans of the Action Groups and the Reference Sites Collaborative Network, and especially how these plans are aligned with the European Commission policy activities, notably the "Transformation of health and care in the Digital Single Market" Communication currently in preparation.
The event is now open for pre-registration at https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/EIPonAHA2018
Pre-registration enables all partners with active EIP on AHA commitments to express their interest in joining the Conference of Partners. Pre-registration, however, does not automatically mean confirmation of your participation. Registrations will be accepted in order of arrival and priority will be given to partners with active and up-to-date commitments. Pre-registration is open until 5th February. You will receive a message confirming your participation by the 9th February at the latest.

The 74 Reference Sites, awarded last December during the European Summit on Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing, will attend the event along with the Action Groups and European Commission officials.
During the first day the presentations will focus on: the RSCN and its mission, the Blueprint document on digital health, the Twinning experiences and the PROEIP-AHA project. A round table with the AGs promoters will conclude the first day.
During the second day selected Reference Sites will present their integrated ecosystems based on a Quadruple helix model where government, industry, academia and civil participants work together, underlining the investments undertaken, the challenges tackled, the lessons learned and the scale up strategies to be implemented. The event will be concluded by a round table with European Commission officials coming from DG Sante, DG Connect, DG Regio and DG Research who will discuss about future strategies and sustainable perspectives.
