This input session will be followed by the policy dialog – public discussion with all involved participants.

In the afternoon session, the Italian policies and best practices in the context of an ageing Central Europe will be presented and discussed together with the representatives of the Department for Equal Opportunities (Presidency of the Council of Ministers) and research experts from Liguria, Toscana and Veneto regions.
