Alpine Space Transnational Governance of Active and Healthy Ageing

Work package 2 - AHA governance models logic classification

Starting from the categories of the 4Helix paradigm (PAs, academia, communities and business), a logic classification of the governance approaches and actors involved was developed, taking into account information on AS governance models and initiatives implementation on AHA, including level of the governance (national/regional/local), sector, faced problem, territorial context (urban, mountain and rural area) and other features that can emerge from the data gathering of WP3.
This report summarizes the work carried out to classify AHA stakeholders and to develop a tool for the identification of actors involved in creating and applying policies as well as in developing initiatives and innovations for AHA in the AS project regions.
This report presents a model for the governance of AHA in the AS. The aim of the model is to strengthen coordination, to support innovation in active ageing and to improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of AHA governance in the AS. Upon implementation, the governance model should further raise awareness for the necessity and potential of intersectoral, interregional and transnational synergies achieved through cooperation in AHA governance.

This report summarizes the work carried out to classify AHA policies, initiatives and innovations in order to :

  • help AS regional governments in implementing and monitoring their AHA policies,
  • help ‘local governments in identifying the most suitable initiatives for their territorial context’,
  • and support ‘establishing an AHA innovation observatory, classifying initiatives and solutions with context and efficacy indicators’ (ASTAHG, 2018, p.1).

The aim of D.T2.1.3 is to develop a tool, the AHA information survey, which will help identifying and describing available and promising AHA policies, initiatives and innovations, and to gather and analyse available information.
