Welcome to the Blog for INNOVAge project. INNOVAge project is a network of European regions involved in integrating eco-independent living for the elderly into regional planning and development.
The INNOVAge project has 15 partners, drawn from 14 member states, representing a broad spectrum of authorities and eco-innovation challenges, all with varying degrees of strategic policy and experience. The project will facilitate the much needed exchange of knowledge and experience and the actual transfer of good practice on eco-independent living to local and regional authorities.
Despite the potential of independent living and the relative application of eco-innovation solutions, its benefits and technical maturity is still limited because policymakers experienced difficulties in coordinating their policies and research programme. In this context, INNOVAge is relevant because it improves effectiveness of policies in eco-independent living, a better connection of actors and integration among policies, transferring good practices identified, and strengthening the knowledge triangle (business-private-research sectors) building up Innovation Hubs in each region.
INNOVAge project has been co-financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and made possible by the INTERREG IVC Programme.
