Abstract: Addressing the need for a better understanding of how policy can target grand challenges, this paper applies a multi-level perspective (MLP) on socio-technical transitions onto current transformation processes in health care and active ageing. The objective of the paper is to improve our understanding of the roles and challenges for policy in this system shift, when perceived and conceptualized through the lens of an MLP perspective. In this way the paper seeks to a) contribute to an improved understanding of the co-evolutionary processes of transformative change in health care; and b) to examine the roles and tensions of governance and coordination of such processes in particular.

Keywords: co-evolution; multi-level perspective; governance; health care; active ageing
