2015: AFE Innovnet
The AFE Innovnet consortium was made up of 27 stakeholders from 16 EU countries, including 12 cities and five regions. Most of the partners are actively involved in the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing D4 action group on age-friendly environments. The project helped local and regional authorities to respond to Europe’s demographic challenge by stimulating investment and facilitating the deployment of innovative age-friendly ICT and social solutions to help older people to age in better health and remain active for longer, lowering the pressure on social and healthcare systems and fostering longer working lives. This EU-wide mobilisation should also help develop an EU wide single market for innovative ICT based silver economy products and services.
