A number of events, organised by participant organisations of the ADVANTAGE Joint Action (JA) took place in different MSs in June to present the JA to Stakeholder groups and establish potential ways of cooperation with them. Health and Social local, regional and national authorities, as well as NGOs and Institutions representing older citizens attended the meetings.
The main topics addressed were:

  • presentation of ADVANTAGE and the potential role of stakeholders;
  • frailty and its consequences at individual and population level;
  • current examples of frailty related activities;
  • Time for debate was allocated after each section and at the end of the meetings.

Attendance and participation was high, with attendees coming from different areas of the regions and the events met the expectations of the audience. Stakeholders showed great interest in the JA activities and aims and most of the attendees are willing to collaborate by disseminating ADVANTAGE JA results, adopting future recommendations stemming from it and participating in future Stakeholder meetings. The feedback and the suggestions made will help each MS, as well as the JA as a whole to improve future work of the JA and aspects related to the stakeholders´ role in ADVANTAGE to foster closer collaboration.
