The number of elderly people is increasing worldwide. Innovation, and especially digital innovation, can play a key role in improving the quality of life of the ageing population while ensuring the resilience and sustainability of health and social care systems.

The Innovation Networks for Scaling Active and Healthy Ageing (IN-4-AHA) is a project funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme to address these challenges. The objective of the IN-4-AHA project is to facilitate the scale-up of innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing across the EU.

The success and large-scale use of digital tools for citizen empowerment and person-centered care heavily depend on an active contribution from local and regional ecosystems, stakeholder groups, and organisations, including industry, civil society, academia, and public administration.


The objective of IN-4-AHA Open Call is to facilitate the scalability of innovative solutions in active and healthy ageing across EU. ​Open Call offers testing opportunities and business coaching for innovative and scalable solutions. ​User-centred cross-border testing of selected innovations will be done in e-environments and physical spaces in Finland and Spain.
