Focus on prevention

EIT Digital’s Innovation Action Line Health and Wellbeing aligns with the European H2020 objective to keep people at work for 2 more years and keep people living independently at least for 2 more years. Supporting people with ICT based solutions improve the quality of life, giving people the chance to live uncompromised, comfortable, safe, and active. This includes independent living and avoiding social exclusion at an advanced age. The primary prevention areas have the full attention where regulation barriers are less strict. The Health and Wellbeing (HWB) Business Community 2015 fit in the ambition of the action line and functions as a market place that promotes the EIT Digital Innovation activities and startups to potential buyers of innovation.
