<AGE-FRIENDLY HOUSING: Role of Real Estate Companies

Commission at early planning stage

The Commission, still at the early planning stage, is considering a European Reference Framework for Age-friendly Housing to stimulate a European market of relevant products and services and guide the member states on age-friendly housing renovation, what tax breaks or subsidies would be justified, stimulating public investment and an industry strategy for smart homes.

EPF representatives are attending Commission 'road shows' around Europe to demonstrate that leading health-care real estate companies are providing what people need.

Michael MacBrien, Director General of EPF, spoke at a European construction industry conference on 17 November, will speak at the roadshow of 6 December and be the keynote at the major event of 8 December at which the Commission will sum up its impressions.
