For its 2019 report Transforming the future of ageing, SAPEA brought together eminent European scientists to explore and respond to the question “What policies at the EU level could support member states in achieving inclusive, fair and sustainable systems of health and social care to promote the taking-up of innovation for ageing societies?”
This meeting will present the SAPEA report to the Portuguese public, researchers and policy stakeholders, and discuss the evidence it contains in the light of demographic, health and economic conditions in Portugal.
