Info Day | June 1, 2021
The analysis of funding schemes supporting international cooperation in Digital Health and AHA is part of the activities of the IDIH Consortium and provides findings to inform about opportunities for projects and initiatives between the EU and the 5 IDIH strategic countries (China, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and USA).
These information have been collected in 2 Guidebooks, available here:
If you want just some tips from the Guidebooks, listen to the IDIH podcast, there you’ll find some highlights, besides interviews with experts and policymakers!
During the Info Day, after a briefing on the IDIH project and its latest outcomes, the 2 Guidebooks have been presented by the IDIH Team in detail, providing the participants with an overview of the current funding opportunities there collected.

Innovation Day | June 4th, 2021
This session has been opened with the presentation of the IDIH Forum and its current results, as part of a first plenary session by the project team and the Experts Groups Chairs. 4 parallel co-creation thematic sessions has followed, each one dedicated to one of the IDIH Strategic Topic:
In order to deepen and integrate the reflection made by IDIH experts on the priorities in the field of Digital Health for Active and Healthy Ageing, that may be suitable for international cooperation, the 4 parallel sessions represented an occasion to open the discussion to a wider community of international experts outside the project.
The co-creation exercise by the participants has been mainly based on listening in detail the priority topics identified by the IDIH Experts and reacting through:
- Questions to the Chairs of the IDIH Experts Groups
- Feedbacks to the identified topic priorities (comments in support of the identified priorities, resulting from their expertise)
- Original contributions (missing priority topics): new priorities that had not been yet identified by IDIH Experts
The full presentation of June 4 and some highlights from the parallel sessions are available here.
