On 22 March 2022, the Reference Site Collaborative Network (RSCN) opened a 4th Call for European Reference Sites. The Call remains open until 31 May 2022.
Active and Healthy Ageing Reference Sites are alliances or partnerships of health and care stakeholders within a region, major metropolitan area, or geographic locality that can implement or develop innovative and person-centred solutions and digital technologies, to address the life-course health and care needs and priorities for active and healthy ageing in their region.
Reference Sites can ensure there is a common understanding of the policy, organisational, technical and financial challenges facing the region, and shared efforts are undertaken to deliver a life-course approach to active and healthy ageing. They can do this by bringing together all health and care stakeholders across Public Authorities, Health and Care Providers, Research, Academia, Industry, Civic Society and Patient Groups.
All existing Active and Healthy Ageing Reference Sites and other regions across Europe that are addressing a life-course approach to active and healthy ageing are invited to apply and be accredited as an Active and Healthy Ageing Reference Site.
Becoming a Reference Site:
- brings benefits to your region through the collaboration with other health and care stakeholders
- offers opportunities to collaborate, and share knowledge, learning and good practices to address life-course approaches to active and healthy ageing with other Reference Site regions across Europe.
Further information on the 4th Call for Reference Sites, along with links to the online application form are available here.
The RSCN will be organising Information Sessions for those wishing to apply for the 4th Call; further information and dates will be published soon.
The RCSN looks forward to receiving applications from all existing Reference Sites and from new regions across Europe. Apply by the 31 May 2022 deadline!
