Work Plan
The main aim of the SIRENE proposal is to support the growth of social innovation ecosystems delivering eco-friendly and sustainable community-based services for SHAFE (Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments) implementation in Europe, by providing a workable framework for investment and the broad adoption of highquality smart living solutions, combining the housing sector and ICT infrastructure.
SIRENE will facilitate an EU-wide network of networks connecting different actors and perspectives under a common theme, to test and implement SHAFE innovations for a stronger directionality towards the twin transition, with economic, social and environmental sustainability, including at local level and in rural areas.

In order to achieve its main objective, SIRENE action will pursue a number of clearly defined operational objectives, concretely:

Objective 1:

Promoting social innovation implementation and investments in eco-friendly inclusive environments, by developing a robust framework and tools for Social Innovation ecosystems build and expansion.

Objective 2:

Installing and promoting a co-creation network of experts and local ecosystems that enables the identification of requirements and needs and that validates the framework.

Objective 3:

Developing a sustainability strategy to enable the framework implementation and access to funding, by harnessing the potential of Social Innovation to support inclusive, eco-friendly and independent living.
