On 22 October in Eindhoven, Noord-Brabant (NL), at the occasion of the World Health and Design Forum, AER organised an event focusing on regional politicians’ involvement in the implementation of smart solutions for active and healthy living. 5 regional politicians exchanged on the strategies they were developing in this field in their territories and the obstacles they met. The AER Academic and Training Centre then introduced the leadership toolkit and the potential offered by this toolkit to all decision-makers in setting up efficient public policies, in particular in the active and healthy living sector.
Parallel round tables then allowed all participants to explore the diversity of national and regional health care systems in Europe and specify their needs to roll up a leadership programme targeted at these needs. A concrete output of the event will be the organisation of training sessions on Leadership in various Regions of Europe in 2015.
