The European Summit on Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing will be the second of its kind. Held in Brussels, Belgium the summit will run from 5th December until the 7th December 2016 and will discuss how digital innovation is transforming the delivery of health care in Europe. The areas of discussion will range from medical treatment to prevention and also include topics beyond health and care, namely the Silver Economy (e.g. silver tourism, adaptable housing and transportation innovations).

A key part of the programme will be the presentation of the Digital Single Market as a tool to create opportunity and economic growth from demographic change.
