INNOVAge and CASA projects look at the complex issues that arise from demographic ageing and the many challenges that the future poses on European senior care. The projects aim at finding sustainable, innovative and practical solutions that enable longer independent living. With this aim, both projects have decided to join forces and organize a Joint Final Conference to present their results. The Conference will take place in Brussels on October 7th 2014, under the topic Creating unity out of diversity: sustaining lessons learnt in Active Ageing.
CASA is about the development of regional policy and the exchange of knowledge around the up scaling of innovative ICT and services for independent living. Demographic changes make it necessary to organize the care and housing of senior citizens and chronically ill in a smarter way including the use of ICT. This also gives opportunities for innovative companies to develop new tools and services.
INNOVAge project aims at helping older people to live independently for longer in their own homes by increasing their autonomy and by the emerging of new ‘technological supply chains’ associated with new developments like independent living and eco-innovation, with a valuable contribution to minimize environmental impact of elderly daily life activities.
