Growing the EU Silver Economy: a workshop on policy recommendations, 8 March, Brussels (BE)

This free one-day workshop is organised in the framework of a study on the EU Silver Economy, requested by the European Commission and to be published this spring. The workshop programme will include:

  • A preview of key results of the study, including a macroeconomic analysis of the European Silver Economy;
  • Presentation of 10 Silver Economy cases that provide opportunities for economic growth (including one on Age-friendly housing based on ECTP AA&D Committee input);
  • Discussion of policy recommendations to stimulate an emerging Silver Economy in Europe.

The aim of the workshop is to support a European-level 'system innovation' for tackling the societal challenge linked to an ageing population while unlocking new jobs and economic growth.
