IN-4-AHA Twinning: Call for Applications!

One of the key aspects of the IN-4-AHA project is enhancing knowledge and innovation sharing among European stakeholders active in the AHA innovation space. Twinnings are a crucial part of this ambition, being capacity building activities between two different organizations, where one develops an innovative practice, and other implements it.

In the European Active and Healthy Ageing (AHA) context, these organizations are usually from different regions/countries, the first being called the Originator, and the second one, the Adopter. The IN-4-AHA consortium, in its efforts to develop a new and improved scale up model, will foster 10 twinning activities among EIP on AHA Reference Sites.

A budget of of 5.000 euros per twinning, depending on the expenses and activities to be carried out. For instance, to fund costs with travel, accommodation, public and private transport in and from the nearest airport and hotel or the Originator/Adopters addresses.

What types of Innovative practices are we looking for?
