Phase 1 (30 months): interregional learning with the purpose of facilitating the exchange of experiences and good practices among 7 European regions that participate in the project.

Phase 2 (24 months): implementation of the action plans.


PROJECT AIM: Establish a network for knowledge exchange with 7 European regions in order to improve the quality and development of healthcare systems in relation to active and healthy ageing. There are three subject areas in the project:

  • Subject Area 1 – Technological Innovation (“Outside-In”): promote the acquisition of innovative products and solutions by public healthcare systems through new procedures (innovative public procurement, co-creation of programmes between public agents and private companies, among others, public-private partnership, etc.).
  • Subject Area 2 – Technological Innovation (“Inside-Out”): reduce the gap between research and the market, improving the transfer of research results to the market.
  • Subject Area 3 – Activate citizens for healthy ageing: improve knowledge and educate citizens on the importance of the use of new technologies to improve their quality of life and involve citizens in the co-design of experiences with healthcare professionals and caregivers.
