Workshop - MAFEIP Tool:

Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing

Thursday, 11 May, from 14:00 to 15:00 in the Saturn Room.


The European Commission financed the design and development of a flexible web-based monitoring framework called MAFEIP “Monitoring and Assessment Framework of the EIP” to assess the evolution and impact of interventions in the framework of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA). This tool has been designed both to measure the impact across the three 'wins' as well as a tool that can be used for decision-making processes by public and industry stakeholders investing in innovative solutions for active and healthy ageing, far beyond the scope of EIP on AHA participation.

The MAFEIP tool is based on an analytical decision model, specifically a Markov model with three health states, that allows to be adapted to different types of interventions and makes it possible to estimate the health and economic outcomes that result from implementing such interventions with respect to standard care. Therefore, MAFEIP provides an early assessment of the likelihood that the interventions will achieve the expected impact and also helps to identify what drives interventions’ effectiveness or efficiency, thus representing a tool that helps in the decision-making process.

The purpose of the workshop is twofold: 1) to give a brief introduction of the MAFEIP study and the theory underlying the MAFEIP model and, 2) to train the attendees in the use of the tool through practical case studies.

Workshop content:

  • Introduction to the MAFEIP tool and the underlying model
  • Identification of the main data required to perform the analysis
  • Utilization of the MAFEIP tool to perform cost-utility analysis
  • Interpretation of the results
