Warwick contribution to the European Commission: the MAFEIP tool

The "Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing" (MAFEIP) is a tool aiming at supporting evidence-based decision-making processes for all institutions and users in the health and care sector.

Within the framework of the new 2017-2019 EIP on AHA cycle, MAFEIP represented one the three cross-cutting initiatives that are open to any Partner to participate along with the Blueprint on Digital Transformation of Health and Care and the Innovation 2 Market initiative.

The ABSPIE has given relevant contributions to the MAFEIP tool design, validation and dissemination. This page collect some of these contribution for REF purposes.

Details on the MAFEIP tool underlying methods can be read here. This paper, authored by Dr Christian EH Boehler, Gimon de Graaf, Lotte Steuten, Yaling Yang and Fabienne Abadie was published in the BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making Supplement 3 (Volume 15) Edited by Dr Pecchia in 2015.

One of Dr Pecchia case studies was chosen by the European Commission JRC as case study for piloting the MAFEIP tool. Details on the case study can be read here.

In September 2015, Dr Pecchia was invited to present the so called Warwick case study in Brussels, during the first MAFEIP workshop. The minutes of the meeting can be accessed online or downloaded here.

In 2016, the same case-study was used by the European Commission JRC to present the tool during the Falls Festival. Slides are accessible online and can be downloaded here.

The 10th November 2016, Dr Pecchia represented the European Commission in Asturia, where he was invited to present the MAFEIP tool (link1, link2)

The 27th of February 2017, Dr Pecchia was invited to present the tool in Girona, Spain, to more than 20 representatives of EU organisations dealing with integrated care and other active and healthy ageing topics (link or download).

The 10th of May 2017, Dr Pecchia presented the MAFEIP tool at the World Health Organization (WHO), during the 3rd Global Forum on Medical Devices (link or download).

The MAFEIP tool is now fully functional and the European Commission explicitly required the used of the tool in 4 Horizon2020 calls:
