The overall objective of the Network was to support the long-term care policy-making process across the EU by identifying evidence about key strategies for reducing the need for care and for improving the quality and efficiency with which care systems meet needs of users and carers.


An overarching objective of the Network has been to maximise long-­term care policy learning and knowledge exchange between EU countries. In order to meet this overall objective, the Network assessed, synthesised and presented in a “policy-friendly” way evidence about the following five key policy themes:

  1. Disability trends

  2. Reducing dependency

  3. Unpaid carers

  4. New models of care

  5. Maximising coordination
