EIP on Active and Healthy Ageing (MAFEIP)

The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) is a policy initiative that aims to share and scale up innovative solutions to improve active and healthy ageing in order to address the challenges of demographic change in Europe. The objectives of the Partnership are to increase the health and quality of life of European citizens, to improve the sustainability of health and care systems and to contribute to more economic growth in Europe.

For monitoring the impact of the various activities carried out by the stakeholders of the Partnership towards these objectives, DG JRC IPTS in cooperation with DG CNECT and DG SANTE developed a web-based tool within the "Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing" (MAFEIP) project. The MAFEIP-tool was launched in September 2015 during a workshop hosted by DG CNECT in Brussels.

The main purpose of the MAFEIP tool is twofold: first, to accumulate evidence on the impact of the activities carried out within the Partnership in terms of quality-adjusted life expectancy and health and care resource use within and across its six thematic Action Groups; and second, to provide decision relevant outcomes that are of value to developers, investors and implementers of innovation in the Active and Healthy Ageing arena across Europe.

The MAFEIP tool rests on a generic three-state Markov model and allows adaptation to various health and care settings, target populations, and innovations under assessment.
