The Commission adopted on 29 April its 2009 Communication on Ageing. The Communication identifies as one of the key policy priorities the promotion of new services and products to serve ageing populations and encourages the introduction of technology in long-term care.
The Commission Communication takes an in-depth look at the economic and budgetary impact of an ageing population over the long-term until 2060.
