In 2018 Thematic Network SHAFE delivered a Framing Paper and a Joint Statement on Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments presented to the European Commission in November.

SHAFE is coordinated by Cáritas Coimbra and AFEdemy, in close cooperation with main partners, such as the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA), European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC), Reference Sites Collaborative Network, European Covenant on Demographic Change, Eurocities, Utrecht University (as former partner of the European Framework for Age-Friendly Housing), European Centre Social Welfare Policy, European Health Telematics Association (EHTEL) and ECHAlliance.

Other interested organisations or networks can become associated partners or endorsing partners only.

Associated partners cooperate with the coordinators and main partners by delivering suggestions and comments on the draft Framing Paper and draft Joint Statement.

Endorsing partners are networks or organisations that endorse the final version of the Joint Statement that is presented to the European Commission in November 2018.

SHAFE is a non-funded project and partners join voluntarily. There is no contribution fee for partners.
