How Technology Can Facilitate Healthy Aging and Independent Living: Exploring Synergisms Between EU and US Researchers. Washington DC, March 2009.

More than 60 individuals among program officers of US and EU agencies and researchers from the US, EU, and Japan met in Washington DC on March 19-20, 2009 to discuss potential synergisms among EU and US federal agencies and other US Institutions with focus on research on aging and independent living.  Meetings were held at the National Institutes of Health and the offices of the Delegation of the European Commission in Washington DC.  Paul Timmers (Head of Unit, Information Society & Media D-G, ICT for Inclusion/H3) and Peter Wintlev-Jensen (Head of Sector ICT & Ageing, Information Society & Media D-G, ICT for Inclusion/H3) led the EC delegation that met with representatives of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Office of Global Health Affairs, the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT, the Office of Disability Aging and Long-Term Care Policy, and other US institutions including associations and foundations with interest in aging and independent living.  The documents below are presentations that were given during the meeting or distributed to attendees as material relevant to the discussion about possible synergisms between EU and US researchers and institutions.
