Our IN-4-AHA community is engaged through inspiring webinars, participatory workshops, networking events, and twinning activities. But our project is just one part of a larger European-wide community working on Active and Healthy Ageing solutions, policies, and initiatives.

If you want to learn more about other networks and projects, we recommend checking out the ones listed below. 

IN-4-AHA also uploads all its publications, events and calls on a permanent platform powered by the European Commission: Futurium. Join us in the group for Active and Healthy Living in the Digital World, a multi-stakeholder information and communication hub for everyone working on Active and Healthy Ageing. 

Other projects working on AHA:


Through a 'learning by sharing' methodology, this multi-disciplinary and intersectoral consortium will build a quadruple-helix European community to exchange experiences and practices to improve multilevel policy instruments. The EU SHAFE project is following up on work developed in EIP on AHA Action Group D4 – Age Friendly Environments.


The SCIROCCO project highlights a practical tool, which had its genesis in the collaborative efforts fostered by the EIP on AHA. The project was based on the work developed by EIP on AHA’s B3 Action Group on Integrated Care, that started the concept of the B3 Maturity Model.


GATEKEEPER is a European Multi Centric Large-Scale Pilot on Smart Living Environments. The main objective is enabling the creation of a platform that connects healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, and elderly citizens and the communities they live in.


The project assesses the societal impact of open platforms created for the development of innovative solutions in the AHA domain. It creates monitoring and evaluation toolkits, collects successful user stories, and best practices to promote common evolution of such platforms within existing policy frameworks and initiatives.


The aim of NET4Age-Friendly is to establish an international and interdisciplinary network of researchers from all sectors to foster awareness, and to support the creation and implementation of smart, healthy, indoor and outdoor environments for present and future generations.

International Digital Health Cooperation for Preventive, Integrated, Independent and Inclusive Living is a European Union funded project under Horizon 2020. It brings together organisations from the EU and five Strategic Partner Countries: Canada, China, Japan, South Korea and the USA, aiming to increase international collaboration to advance digital health to support active and healthy ageing through innovation.


The SHAPES Innovation Action (IA) intends to build, pilot and deploy a large-scale, EU-standardised open platform. The integration of a broad range of technological, organisational, clinical, educational and societal solutions seeks to facilitate long-term healthy and active ageing and the maintenance of a high-quality standard of life.


The objective of eCare is to launch a Pre-Commercial Procurement call for tender to deliver disruptive digital solutions for the prevention and comprehensive management of frailty to encourage independent living, wellbeing and to relieve health and care services budget pressure.
