The upcoming “Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Basque Country” event, organized by our partner TECNALIA, marks an important milestone in the European SIRENE initiative. Scheduled for April 23, 2024, this event aims to foster discussions and collaborations around the implementation of Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE) in the Basque Country.

The overarching goal of the SIRENE project is to support the growth of social innovation ecosystems that offer environmentally sustainable, community-based services, thereby promoting SHAFE implementation across Europe. By providing a robust framework for investment, SIRENE encourages the widespread adoption of smart solutions to enhance quality of life, particularly in the context of ageing populations, by integrating the housing sector with ICT advancements.

Event Objectives:

  • Exchange views on the social innovation framework developed by the SIRENE project.
  • Gather inspiration from diverse events across different countries.
  • Share experiences from the Basque Country at local, regional, and national levels.
  • Consult with stakeholders in the Basque ecosystem on the SIRENE social innovation framework.

Smart Environments for Ageing Well:

As demographics shift and populations age, the need for smart living solutions becomes increasingly evident. Many existing housing structures are not conducive to independent living for older adults, necessitating investments in smart technologies to transform the housing stock into age-friendly environments.

This event presents an excellent opportunity to explore investment avenues in smart living solutions, highlighting the potential benefits of aligning social entrepreneurs with innovation ecosystems. By facilitating collaborations and knowledge-sharing, the SIRENE initiative aims to catalyze innovation in the realm of ageing well and promote sustainable, inclusive communities.

Join us on April 23rd to delve into the exciting possibilities offered by Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments and contribute to the advancement of social innovation in the Basque Country.
